Summer Program in Epidemiology


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:
The 4 week Summer Program in Epidemiology integrates mathematics and quantitative methods to provide students with an understanding of the skills and processes necessary to pursue a career in public health. The breadth and scope of public health is vast and requires an interdisciplinary approach, which can encompass various fields ranging from immunology to nutrition to environmental research.

The summer program curriculum consists of three parts: introductory coursework in epidemiology and biostatistics; formal lectures, which are provided by faculty members with different foci in epidemiology; and a group research project where students will investigate a question of public health relevance that interests them. Students who participate in the program are able to meet with students matriculating through various programs at Harvard School of Public Health. In addition, students have the opportunity to meet with faculty and administrators individually, and the chance to explore the city of Boston. Participants receive summer salary, housing, and funded travel.
