Graduate Summer Internship Program

GHI-CTP internsIn 2010, the Emory Global Health Institute - China Tobacco Control Partnership launched a Graduate Summer Internship Program in China. Designed to complement its work on tobacco control, the program allows graduate students to spend eight weeks in China working with city partners on their specific initiatives.

The program includes a competitive application process and basic training in Chinese tobacco control efforts for those selected. The selected students work on a variety of tobacco control projects in a grantee location. Our GHI-CTP partners provide challenging and rewarding opportunities for interns to expand their knowledge and skills in public health and tobacco control.  Past projects have included developing public service messages, creating tobacco education materials, engaging in evaluation efforts, and drafting reports.

Each intern has a mentor throughout the program and delivers a presentation about his or her completed work upon return to Emory.  The interns also have the opportunity to participate in the Global Health Institute Scholars Symposium.  Past interns have expressed a new appreciation both for the opportunity to work so closely with our Chinese partners, and for the challenges and rewards of tobacco control work in China.
