The Pittsburgh Summer Institute in Applied Public Health (PSI) provides an enhanced and productive practicum experience at the Allegheny County Health Department. In addition to working to address real public health problems in the county, participants experience the day-to-day operations of an active health department while working with experienced public health practitioners. In addition to their individual projects, PSI students engage in a group project that exposes them to the multidisciplinary, cross-cutting nature of work that is done in a local health department. The PSI offers a stipend of $1,500 to each student.
The summer 2019 PSI will run from Wednesday, May 15–August 9.
The application period for summer 2019 has ended. We expect the application portal to open in early January 2020 for summer 2020 opportunities. All applications require completion of a brief online form and submission of a current resume and cover letter.
The PSI is sponsored by the Graduate School of Public Health. For students interested in PSI opportunities, questions can be directed to Robin A. Leaf, MEd, educational programs and practicum manager.
