Program in Applied Vaccine Experiences - PAVE
PAVE supports vaccine-focused internships for Johns Hopkins students at international organizations that play critical roles in global vaccine policy and delivery.
In previous years, PAVE Scholars have been placed with mentors at agencies such as:
- The World Health Organization’s Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals (IVB) (Geneva, Switzerland)
- Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (Geneva, Switzerland)
- Pan American Health Organization (Washington, DC)
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Global Immunization Division (Atlanta, Georgia)
- Unicef (New York City)
Through PAVE, Hopkins students spend 12 to 16 weeks working full time at one of the partner organizations, gaining valuable experience in vaccine research, policy and programs of global importance. Successfully completing a 16-week PAVE internship can fulfill the Department of International Health's MSPH practicum requirement.
- JHSPH master’s and doctoral degree students in programs lasting longer than 12 months
- Students must have completed their first year of coursework when the internship begins in August [graduates are not eligible].
- Students must be in good academic standing.
- Preference will be given to students enrolled in one or more of the vaccine courses offered at the Bloomberg School.
- Please note: Some partner organizations/positions have additional eligibility criteria and organizational preferences which may include language proficiency or country/region of origin.
