Morocco Public Health Internship
This program involves masters of public health students who work for six weeks at Hassan 1st University in Settat, Morocco to help teach public health courses for graduate public health and nursing students, and work on maternal and child health research projects with PhD students in public health.
The intern develops a curriculum and provids lectures for an MPH Course - Community Health, an advanced nursing course, a maternal health course and a course in child health nutrition. They design qualitative research for two PhD research projects - one focused on HIV prevention, and another focused on social determinants of female reproductive health and ultimately, provide help with the public health accreditation process.
This opportunity is transformative as it exposes students to the beauty of the Moroccan people, landscape and culture. It truly engages an IU intern in the process of growing and implementing public health education and research in Morocco.
