INTH-393 Internship II: International Organizations
Spring for 2017-2018
This seminar will accompany the students’ internships and will expand the practical experience gained. The course objective is for the students to be able to synthesize the experience gained while working with development organizations and to evaluate it in the context of the comprehension gained during their four years of study in the International Health Program. The course will be facilitated by International Health faculty; it will provide an opportunity for exchange and feedback on the internship experience. Participants will discuss current issues and priorities in global health and learn about development organizations and their work in the respective areas. Through a two-day practical training workshop, students will be introduced to various management techniques used in development planning and implementation. For the internship, students will work with an international organization or development program (such as PAHO, World Bank, PEPFAR, etc.) for 12 hours per week, about 150 total hours in the Spring semester (subject to the individual students’ arrangements with their mentors). Students will regularly report on their individual internship work experience. Each student will write a blog every second week on his or her work, as well as a final written internship report.
