Division of Health Care Quality-ORISE Fellowship, due 4/9

Category : Alumni

Seeking two new ORISE fellows to serve in the Division of Health Care Quality within the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, at the US Department of Health and Human Services. The job is based in Rockville, MD, just outside Washington, DC.

ORISE fellows are recent graduates of public health (and pharmacy) programs who desire an educational and mentoring experience in federal government over a one to three year period. We have a great public health policy office here and are eager to help develop and guide junior career staff.

Much of our time is directed towards supporting our Congressionally-mandated federal advisory commission which focuses on diabetes; in addition, we have responsibility for two national action plans, one on prevention of health care-associated infections and the other on prevention of adverse drug events, including opioids, diabetes agents, and anticoagulants.

Summer Practicum – Marshfield Clinic Research Institute 1/21

Summer Program 2019:  May 28 – August 8, 2019

Program Overview

The Marshfield Clinic Research Institute has offered summer research internship opportunities to qualified students since 1974. The primary goal of the program is to provide a mentored, hands-on research experience for college undergraduate, graduate, dental, and medical students considering a career in research. Students work with a research scientist on an independent project and contribute to all aspects of the research process. In addition to the independent projects, students are encouraged to attend medical Grand Rounds, scientific seminars and journal clubs. Opportunities to shadow clinicians are also available. All students are required to attend an IRB meeting, lead a journal club discussion, prepare an abstract describing their research, and prepare and deliver an oral presentation of their research at the annual Research Symposium on August 7th.

An applicant is considered a junior if he/she will have completed all sophomore credits by the time the internship begins and will be entering at least the junior year following completion of the internship. Please note: For undergraduate positions, preference will be given to students with senior standing.

F-1 international students currently attending a college or university within the U.S. who hold, or can hold for the purposes of the internship, a valid Employee Authorization Document (EAD) are eligible.
