Program in Applied Vaccine Experiences - PAVE

PAVE supports vaccine-focused internships for Johns Hopkins students at five organizations:

Through PAVE, Hopkins students spend 12 to 16 weeks working full time at one of these international organizations. PAVE scholars gain 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.  


Strong preference for these competitive internships will be given to students enrolled in one or more of the vaccine courses offered at JHSPH
