Past interns and their work

The Institute for Health and Social Policy (IHSP) internship program welcomed its first cohort of interns in 2006. Since then, over 180 interns have participated in this exciting program which combines research, skill-building, and professional development. Many past interns have pursued further studies in the field of health policy or public policy. Some of the program’s alumni now work as healthcare practitioners. Many have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in public health, law, and public administration. Others now work for international organizations such as the WHO, the EU and the UN. The internship program provides a unique opportunity for McGill students to work in an exciting and diverse interdisciplinary research environment.

Over the years, students have joined faculty members on existing and completed research projects, and have conducted work on topics such as civil society and rule of law, conference outreach, measuring global health, and comparative health policy. For more information about the research being conducted at the IHSP, please consult the “Research” section of the IHSP website.

The available projects vary each semester. During recruitment periods, the list of available projects will be posted in the “Student Programs” section of the IHSP website.
