Now Seeking Graduate Interns to Work With Us This Summer (2014)

Prevention Institute is now accepting applications for Graduate Interns for the summer of 2014. We're looking for graduate students who are committed to improving health and safety and reducing inequities through a focus on prevention. You’ll have a chance to grow your skills by working with our organizational teams to address health and social issues using a prevention approach, including violence prevention, injury prevention, traffic safety, health reform implementation and healthy food and physical activity promotion.

Prevention Institute's internship program is for continuing graduate students (masters or doctoral) in public health, social work, public policy, urban planning, and related fields. Internships are paid and we ask students to commit to working 40 hours per week for 10-12 weeks. Our internship provides students with the opportunity to:

  1. Apply what they are learning in graduate school by delving deep into a project or set of projects
  2. Learn about Prevention Institute, our unique approach and how the practice of primary prevention is taking hold across the country. Applications are due February 16th.
