Global Health Student Research Training Program

SRTThe Student Research Training Program is an intensive experiential learning program that engages second- and third-year undergraduates in the development, implementation and assessment of a community-based global health project. Students work in Haiti, Honduras, India, Kenya, Uganda or North Carolina on issues ranging from infant mortality and healthcare mapping to access to care for migrant populations, HIV/AIDS and substance abuse issues.

Working with a faculty director and a community partner, students are at the center of global health challenges. The Student Research Training Program is offered through the Duke Global Health Institute and is part of the Bass Connections Global Health theme.

The program runs during the summer each year, with the application deadline in the preceding October. Participants receive a grant to cover their fieldwork experience.

The application deadline for Summer 2018 was October 15, 2017.
