BSCD Summer Fellowship In Public Health Research

BSCD Undergraduate Summer Fellowship in Public Health Research

The University of Chicago Department of Public Health Sciences seeks to engage college students in mentored research projects in public health.  The Department of Public Health Sciences is the home in the Biological Sciences Division for the core quantitative research fields in public health: biostatistics, epidemiology and health services research. Our faculty both lead research projects in these fields and participate in interdisciplinary teams with faculty in other departments to address complex problems in health and healthcare, in our communities and around the globe.

A primary objective of the fellowship is to provide undergraduate students an immersive research experience through close interactions with faculty, research teams and research projects. Projects will focus on interdisciplinary topics that bring biostatistical and quantitative methods to improve understanding of complex problems in population health and develop new solutions.  Fellowships will be 10 weeks in duration and based in Chicago. Fellows will work with their faculty mentors on research projects.
