ICAP's Next Generation Program

ICAP’s Next Generation Program provides students with an opportunity to develop their skills working side-by-side with global health experts in New York and around the world.  During the internship, students spend two to six months engaged in the design, implementation and evaluation of ICAP-supported programs.

Students will gain rich field experience while working with experienced public health professionals. Every student works closely with a mentor prior to departure and while in country. Students work on a specific project that helps them appreciate the structure and function of health systems and health services in low-resource countries.  They also gain a better understanding of health issues such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, among others.
