Duke Global Health Institute Presents Student Research Training Program


Deadline: October 24, 2016

The DGHI Student Research Training Program is an intensive experiential learning program that engages second and third year undergraduate students in the development, implementation and assessment of a community-based project. Students will work in Haiti, Honduras, India, Kenya, Uganda, and North Carolina, US on issues ranging from infant mortality to health care mapping to access to care for migrant populations and HIV/AIDS and substance abuse issues.

Working with a faculty director and a community partner, students will be at the center of global health challenges and have the opportunity to employ skills learned in the classroom in the community.

Students selected for this program will receive a grant to cover their fieldwork experience.

Students are expected to make a significant commitment to preparing for their experiential learning experience. This includes readings and background research, as well as attending:

  • Bi-weekly meetings with faculty directors
  • Pre-departure workshops focused on project development and implementation
  • Re-entry retreat focused on processing the experience
  • Participate in the global health showcase
