Title: Diversity in Pharmacoepidemiology Summer Internship Program

General Summary and Overview:
The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) invites rising college senior students to participate in an eight-week summer internship program that provides training and skills development in public health research about prescription medications. The long-term goal of the program is to assist students whose backgrounds have historically been underrepresented in biomedical and clinical research to build necessary skills for their career interests in public health, medicine, and other related fields. Students self-identifying as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander are eligible to apply. US citizens, permanent residents and international students who are matriculated at U.S. colleges/universities may apply (visa restrictions may apply).

Learning Outcomes:
• Experiential and didactic learning through division meetings, including journal club sessions, webinars, and guest presentations
• Completion of a summer capstone project under the supervision of a faculty member with the opportunity to present findings to faculty
• In-depth knowledge of state-level public policies on prescription drug costs, pricing, and access
• Mentoring through career development meetings, one-on-one faculty and intern meetings, and strategic, long-term mentor/mentee pairing to guide further career planning
• Opportunity to audit summer courses offered by faculty at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and in other Harvard venues

The fellowship program is best suited for rising senior undergraduate students with an interest in public health, epidemiology, medicine, pharmacy, biostatistics and/or health services research and policy, who are enrolled in a four-year degree program and who self-identify as Black/African American, Native American/Alaskan Native, Hispanic/Latinx or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander. Prior research experience is not required, but applicants must be able to convey an interest in research and how this program will help them to achieve their long-term career goals. Quantitative coursework, skills, or experience is preferred, but not required.

Work environment: Professional Office Environment, Business Casual.
