The goal of AEF is to provide a high quality on-the-job training experience in applied epidemiology for recent graduates and prepare fellows for long-term career placement at the state and local level. Based on their interests and available positions, fellows are matched to a state or local health agency for two years under the guidance of two experienced mentors.

During their assignment, fellows develop a set of core competency skills related to epidemiologic methods, communication skills, public health practice and policy.

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)

Research Intern, Reproductive Health Access Project

The Reproductive Health Access Project (RHAP) is a national nonprofit organization based in New York City that trains and supports clinicians to make reproductive health care accessible to everyone. RHAP focuses on three key areas: abortion, contraception, and miscarriage care. We are looking for a highly-motivated, organized, and detail-oriented individual to join our team as a Research Intern. This position is remote, part-time (hours flexible), and paid. The internship duration is from May to September. 

The Research Intern will work with the Research and Evaluation Manager to support an evaluation of the Reproductive Health Access Network (the Network). The Network is a national initiative bringing together like-minded primary care clinicians across the US to work together nationally and in their respective communities to expand access to abortion, contraception, and miscarriage care in their clinical and teaching practices. This position will support a project to evaluate the impact of the Network and to generate recommendations on how to build Network leadership and engagement. 

Responsibilities:

The Research Intern will play a key role in ensuring that RHAP meets its short and long-term research and evaluation goals. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, detail-oriented self-starter to support a large and growing national initiative. This position is also ideal for someone looking to complete a master’s level practicum and/or capstone project. The primary role of the Research Intern is to lead in the collection, analysis, and synthesis of data for the evaluation of the Network.
