Virtual Global Health Internship
Virtual opportunities in Rwanda and Vietnam
GEI and Des Moines University have developed a Virtual Global Health Internship course that offers undergraduate and graduate students the unique opportunity to engage in GEI’s social impact projects in Mental Health, Public Health, and Maternal & Newborn Health at our African and Asian campus locations in Rwanda and Vietnam. You will join a multicultural and multidisciplinary team that carries out concrete project and research tasks. We will develop a personalized internship plan together with you and provide you with both an experienced preceptor and a local cultural coordinator. The internship is further enriched with topical introduction modules that focus on key SDGs and their application in Africa and Asia; interdisciplinary workshops on cultural intelligence; rich local and intercultural activities (including engagement with local student peers); and assignments.
