Thank you for your interest. The applications for this year are now closed. Please consider applying next year!
The Global Emergency Medicine Division welcomes applications for student interns with a passion for health equity and an interest in a long-term career in global health to assist with ongoing and new projects. Undergraduate, medical and graduate students from within and outside of Brown University often undertake positions as interns to work on research, education, and media & communications projects. US-based and international applicants are welcome to apply. Most projects will be conducted virtually or using hybrid (virtual and in-person) format during the 2023-24 year.
Interns are paired with a division mentor to work on one or more projects during their internship. Occasionally, interns may be assigned more than one mentor. The average time commitment varies depending on the project needs, however the average intern spends between 3-10 hours per month over the course of 6-10 months. Larger time commitments for more involved project duties can be arranged and will vary with the specifics of the project. In general, interns are unpaid volunteers, though occasionally there are opportunities for small stipends through Brown University or other sources. Also, the positions do not generally involve work abroad, except in rare cases in which interns have demonstrated a sustained commitment to a division project. Most interns will be able to gain authorship on at least one abstract or publication, and sometimes more, during their time volunteering as a division intern.
Prior skills including experience conducting literature and systematic reviews, experience writing research papers or grant applications, knowledge of statistical or data management programs, and fluency in foreign languages are favorable among intern applicants.
Communications Team: We also seek students with an interest in media and communication to join our Communications Team to support content development for Global Emergency Medicine division projects including infographics, figures for publications, podcasting, and website design.
Deadline to apply: September 15, 2023. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by October 1, 2023. Note: The division usually maintains a waitlist of qualified applicants, as student interest often exceeds the capacity of division faculty and fellow mentors. However, there are often new projects requiring intern support throughout the year.
