Our School offers opportunities for research and practical experience that are rich, varied and virtually unlimited in their scope and possibility. New York State and the counties in our region serve as a laboratory for the study of public health problems that affect our nation and our world. Students work side-by-side with some of the world’s finest faculty, including Fulbright and visiting scholars, and members of the National Academy of Sciences, and collaborate with world-class researchers at our Cancer Research Center and the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health. Many of the faculty members at the School have primary appointments at the New York Department of Health, working on a daily basis administering major health programs for the state of New York, or researching scientific or policy questions of national significance. Case studies discussed in the classroom frequently emerge from a faculty member’s long experience in the field.
Each week, new opportunities are posted in the Internships & Career Services ListServ, which is sent out to all students through their Albany email account.
Contact your department for information on research opportunities that are currently available.
