MHIRT Programs

As comprehensive global experiences MHIRT programs offer everything an undergraduate needs to conduct research at a foreign site over the summer. Every MHIRT program is hosted by a different institution and the foreign sites available vary from institution to institution. MHIRT programs cover 6 continents with programs offering research in countries ranging from Peru and China to Ghana and Tanzania. Students are given a foreign mentor at the beginning of the program and no previous research experience is necessary in the field of study. MHIRT programs cover a wide range of health topics so be sure to check each site individually to see the subject of research being offered. Students are expected to write a final report and funding is often available for international presentations. Students are paid a stipend in addition to having all expenses (flight to and from foreign site and room and board) covered.
