Graduate Interns at Prevention Institute in Oakland, CA, USA; deadline February 15, 2012 but may be accepted on a case-by-case basis after the due date.
Prevention Institute is looking for Graduate Interns who are committed to improving health and safety and reducing inequities through a focus on prevention. The Institute's approach is interdisciplinary in nature, addressing health and social issues such as violence prevention, injury prevention, traffic safety, health reform implementation and healthy food and physical activity promotion.
The Program: Prevention Institute's summer 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 forty hours a 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 and; 2) learn about Prevention Institute, our unique approach and how the practice of primary prevention is taking hold across the country.
