The Graduate Student Epidemiology Program (GSEP) is a Maternal and Child Health leadership program and internship opportunity. GSEP is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), a department of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and has been around since 1997. The program has trained over 400 students. After a four-year hiatus from 2017 to 2020, GSEP relaunched in Summer 2021 with a cohort of 20 students. The application process, orientation, and 10-week summer internship experience are led by the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP). Students will receive a $7,000 stipend provided by AMCHP.
GSEP 2022 will be a full-time, 40 hour per week remote experience requiring no relocation. While the internship will be remote, student interns will have the opportunity for optional in-person site visits during the first three weeks of their internships, with travel and lodging covered by AMCHP. Although different than in past years, this creates an opportunity for a more inclusive program. Students who might have been unable to relocate for the summer due to expense or commitment will be able to participate this year. Remote work also expands the list of possible host sites that may have been limited due to location or cost of living (e.g., those in Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Territories, or Freely Associated States).
