School of Public Health students experience 'life-changing' internships around the globe
More than 100 Yale School of Public Health students fanned out around the globe — to 26 countries total — to complete their 2012 internship.
It is a defining experience for most Master of Public Health students, exposing them to real-world challenges and giving them the opportunity to directly apply their coursework. Students spent 10 to 12 weeks working in urban slums, remote and rural regions and in hospitals and communities as nearby as New Haven and as far as Bhutan. The internship is, in the words of one returning student, "life-changing."
