Education Programs

The institute maintains two core academic programs throughout the year, bridging the gap between research and practice for researchers, practitioners, and students who are enrolled in both undergraduate and graduate programs. 

Health, Technology, & Society Summer Education Program

The Summer Education Program is an eight-week intensive program that runs between June and July, for both undergraduate and graduate students. Program participants first complete a sequence of courses over two weeks, covering topics on health economics, public policy, program design and evaluation, technology and society, and the ethics of technology. Following the two-week period, students engage in a research project, either on a topic of their choosing and approved by their faculty advisor, or by joining one of the institute's ongoing projects.

Beginning with the Summer 2022 cohort, students are required to have foundational knowledge in R programming for data analysis. Our partnership with Datacamp provides free training and certification to all admitted students at no cost. 


Applications for the 2022 cycle is now closed. Next cycle's applications will open in spring 2023. 





Global Health, Technology, and Policy Fellowship Program


Duration: One academic year or by petition for shorter term.

ITGH seeks to onboard a select group of fellows with diverse backgrounds and across disciplines, whose work intertwines technology, policy, and health. Researchers and practitioners exploring the implications for novel technologies in health on vulnerable populations, their economic impact, legal and regulatory issues, and other questions of importance to society are especially encouraged.
