The IHME Internship is a structured program in which undergraduates can receive professional experience as well as education and training opportunities to enhance career readiness. This internship provides a unique opportunity for undergraduates to work in a dynamic and agile organization at the intersection of nonprofit work, technology development, academia, and research. Interns will have the opportunity to contribute to mission-critical work, learn from experts in the field, and interact with diverse and international staff.
Details surrounding the 2019 internship program are forthcoming.
For the 2018 internship cycle, IHME had offered tracks in the following areas:
- Global Engagement
- Financial Planning
Each track provided a unique and customized experience where individuals had the opportunity to explore a specific professional domain, participated in collaborative projects, received mentorship from experts, and learned a new set of skills and knowledge. Interns received hands-on opportunities to work on projects that are critical to the success of our research and expansion of our organization. The IHME internship program is designed as an experiential learning opportunity intended to enhance personal growth, career development, and academic achievement.
The IHME internship program dates for 2019 are forthcoming. IHME requires interns to commit to 10 weeks of continuous work. Due to the onboarding training and deliverables expected of the position, candidates must commit to this 10-week timeline.
