Stanford Global Health Summer Internships

Join us for the summer! If you are a Stanford undergraduate student, please consider applying for one of two paid summer internships we are offering. You will help with one of these two projects:

WLGHI: The Women Leaders in Global Health Initiative (WLGHI) aims to transform the power of women in global health leadership by raising awareness, empowering leaders, and catalyzing change. Building on the 2017 and 2018 Women Leaders in Global Health conferences, Stanford Global Health received a planning grant to develop and connect mid-and senior-career women leaders to advance global health research, practice and policy. The intern will support this early stage effort through research, coordination, and providing administrative support to launch WLGHI, and in particular support the pilot of our training for women leaders. This includes being a valued member of a small but mighty team to transform our vision into reality.

The Planetary Health Alliance Conference: From September 4-6, 2019. Stanford is hosting the annual meeting of the Alliance, a major international conference bringing together a consortium of universities, nonprofits, private sector companies, government officials, and others. Planetary Health describes an emerging field of applied research at the intersection of environmental systems and human health. The intern will support communications, logistics, volunteer coordination, and planning for post-conference deliverables and activities, working with faculty, students, and staff, both here at Stanford and at PHA.

In addition, interns help support Center events and the team. We coordinate with Global Child Health to offer occasional journal clubs and informal career talks for our shared intern group.

This 10-week internship is a full-time paid position, running from June to August. Our offices are at 1651 Page Mill Road.
