Graduate Student Epidemiology Program (GSEP, formerly Grad Student Internship Program)

Deadline: February 14, 2014

HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau sponsors the Graduate Student Epidemiology Program (GSEP) to enhance students’ skills in data analysis, promote training in MCH epidemiology, and to provide assistance to state and local health agencies with data-related projects. This program provides graduate students with the opportunity to address specific, defined data or analytic issues to assist state and local health agencies in developing their MCH/Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) information systems.

The GSEP offers 12-week projects in state or local health departments. Student interns are paid a stipend of $4,000 for the summer, and will be required to submit a final report at the conclusion of their projects.

This is a fantastic way for students with an interest in Epi, MCH or both to gain experience and additional training. This year there are even two Nebraska-based projects. If you are considering the GSEP program, make sure to connect with COPH Career Services for insight and advice.
