Institute for Health and Social Policy (IHSP) Opportunities

The Institute for Health and Social Policy offers an internship program for students across disciplines at McGill. The internship program trains and develops the next generation of leaders to catalyze solutions that benefit population health and welfare. The program offers research opportunities and diverse training that build on the strengths of graduate and undergraduate education at McGill University in investigating how social conditions affect health and well-being.

The IHSP is currently accepting applications for its internship program!

The internship is composed of two main elements. The bulk of the internship is the work carried out in collaboration with a supervisor, while a weekly seminar/workshop series exposes interns to a variety of disciplines and provides training in translating research to policy. The internship is an opportunity that will require at least as great a time commitment as an academic course. It is recommended that students selected to be interns reduce their workload for the semester accordingly.

The internship program is offered for 13 weeks in the Fall and Winter semesters. Students are expected to spend 10-15 hours per week on their internship project for the entire semester. At the end of their internship, students receive an award of $2,500.

At the beginning of the internship, students meet with their supervisors to go over specific tasks and goals for the semester-long program. In the past, these tasks have included writing comprehensive literature reviews on a narrow topic, performing in-depth statistical analyses, drafting academic manuscripts, and assisting with the coordination and implementation of an international conference. Interns are accountable to their supervisors for work on their project.

The training component is carried out through a weekly 90-minute seminar.

For more information, visite the Institute for Health and Social Policy's internship program section. Deadline for application is June 22nd. 

The IHSP often has several other opportunities and awards on offer as well.
