Graduate Student Epidemiology Program (GSEP)

Great news–the GSEP program is back this year!

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 is relaunching this summer 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.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we anticipate this year’s GSEP will be a full-time, 40 hour per week remote experience – no relocation.  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).

This is a popular program for students interested in both MCH and Epi. View more information and apply online here. (Deadline March 19th)
