ICAP’s Next Generation Program continues to offer education and training opportunities for interns to gain experiences globally. This year, interns will travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique and Lesotho to work on ICAP-supported programs. The interns work side-by-side with the ICAP staff in-country and global health experts on projects ranging from data analysis to engagement in plans for new programs.
All students from the Mailman School of Public Health, Kate Doyle and Zhicheng Ray Qiu will work on projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Emilia Carrera will work in Mozambique. Dylan O’Connor, a medical student from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, will spend nine months working on a range of projects in Lesotho working on diverse projects.
