Trainee Program

The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research provides dynamic experiential education opportunities for students through our trainee program.

Trainees work in a professional environment to support high-calibre research in the areas of Global Health & Humanitarianism, Planetary Health, and Global Health Foresighting. Most positions are directly involved in research projects. A limited number of opportunities exist to support research through communications, event planning and administration.
