Description: 

This program invites sophomore and junior students with an interest in health and/or mental health research to apply to the Project L/EARN research training program. The summer program is an intensive ten-week internship opportunity for qualified students who would like to obtain research skills and "hands-on" experience in health and mental health research under the guidance of a distinguished faculty mentor. Summer training often leads to involvement in faculty research during the subsequent academic year. Faculty mentors represent a diverse array of disciplines, including health economics, medical sociology, medical anthropology, public health, social work and health psychology; all head vigorous research programs. Each intern will be matched with a faculty mentor whose work is most closely aligned with his or her particular interests, skills, and background.

The core of the summer program is a daily workshop that provides technical training in research methods, study design, data management, and statistical analysis (programming in SPSS). Project L/EARN has been designated as one of Rutgers University's Graduate Education Preparation Programs. Interns will be provided with GRE preparation, as well as extensive guidance with respect to applying to graduate school.
