Our group has experience working with undergraduate research assistants, and can also serve as a site to meet internship requirements for pre-professional allied health programs and Master of Public Health Programs. For these positions, we have a preference for students interested in disability health studying health education, health promotion, epidemiology, population health, or social-behavioral sciences. In addition, Dr. James can serve as an internship preceptor for students in the MDisability summer internship program.
