BIPAI and Texas Children’s Global Health Summer Internship

Each summer, through funding from Chevron’s Corporate Responsibility Initiative, the Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatrics AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) and Texas Children’s Global Health offers a graduate-level internship in Houston, Texas. The goal of this 12-week internship is to provide an introduction to the administration and operations management of BIPAI and Texas Children’s Global Health Programs and provide exposure to key issues concerning global health management and program implementation.

Interns will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain experience in the field of global health operations management.
  • Develop skills in collaboration and coordination within a complex organizational and implementation structure.
  • Opportunity to gain an understanding of global health programs and interventions in a variety of country contexts.
  • Gain exposure to global clinical programming and related health challenges in low resource settings.
  • Gain experience working with diverse and multidisciplinary global health implementers and experts.
  • Support the development and dissemination of relevant global health materials including briefing papers, presentations, training and outreach materials.
  • Assist in content creation to increase awareness for BIPAI and the BIPAI network.
  • Document Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) contributions to global health programming.
  • Assist in project management to ensure that specific activities implemented on track to meet intended deliverables with a focus on Global Health priorities (e.g. operations, safety, scholarly activity, external affairs).
  • Other tasks or responsibilities may be assigned based on organizational and programming need and/or the intern’s own interest.

Candidates must be enrolled in a graduate degree-granting program with a focus on Health, Global Health, International Development, Public Policy, Non-Profit Management, Business Administration or another relevant area of study. Interns are expected to function independently, work across different time zones, and are responsible for their housing and transportation.
