U-M Injury Prevention Center Internship Placement Opportunity

The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center will fund 2-4 intern positions next summer supporting work in injury prevention.  The Center will recruit graduate students interested in injury prevention research or practice experiences in specific topic areas. The goal is to offer students an opportunity to gain mentored research and practice-based experience in the area of injury prevention.  Internships are funded at a level of $1,500 per month for 3 months; positions should provide students an opportunity to work approximately 27-30 hours/week (a cumulative total of no less than 318 hours for the summer).

Topic areas eligible for paid intern placement include the prevention of:

  • Opioid overdose
  • Concussion
  • Motor vehicle crash
  • Youth violence
  • Sexual violence
  • Suicide
  • Older adult falls

We are actively seeking placement opportunities for intern applicants.  If your department/organization is interested in providing a learning opportunity, we’d like to hear from you.
