Summer 2023 Paid Opportunity in Public Health Research

Community-Engaged Research Project with The PATIENTS Program at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy

Overview: One,10-week/400-hour student internship offered to a College of Behavioral and Social Sciences or School of Public Health student with an interest in community-engaged research.

Funded by the University of Maryland Strategic Partnership (MPower), the project is part of the UM Scholars program for a University of Maryland College Park student to conduct research with patients, caregivers, community members, health care providers, and other stakeholders who influence patients’ decisions about participation in their health care and research.

The intern will work under the supervision of Professor C. Daniel Mullins, Executive Director of the PATIENTS Program at the University of Maryland Baltimore’s School of Pharmacy. The selected student will receive $5000 for the work, to be paid in three installments over the 10 weeks. Our research is conducted in community settings within Baltimore and virtually. Traveling to, and parking at UMB, is the responsibility of the student.

Faculty Lead: C. Daniel Mullins, PhD

Location: In-person & Remote

In-person: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Remote: Thursday, Friday

Ideal Candidate: A student from the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences or School of Public Health or any other student interested in public health

About the Project: The PATIENTS Program works with community leaders and organizations to codevelop study protocols and advance the science of patient engagement and authentic community academic partnerships.

Our research portfolio is “disease agnostic,” meaning that we focus on best practices for meaningful and trustworthy engagement in research; however, our current projects span conditions such as cancer, COVID-19, HIV/AIDS, pain, trauma and traumatic brain injury and subpopulations such as African Americans and other racial/ethnic minorities, disability and impairment populations, seniors, and women.

Our current NIH-funded work explores how to build a memorandum of commitment and data-use agreements that reflect community concerns and bioethical principles.

Our collaborative research with the FDA explores better ways to evaluate and communicate about the intersection of human health, animal health, and the environment as part of a current M-CERSI award related to the OneHealth Initiative.

In Summer 2022, we launched the PATIENTS Professors Academy, which will be expanded in 2023 and provide the intern with an opportunity to participate in a training program about patient-centered research.

The student intern will participate in meetings for ongoing research projects and will carve out a specific topic to lead. Topics could include developing a tool for the toolkit, developing questions for focus groups, or creating a “give back” or infographic about one of our community-engaged research projects. The student intern is encouraged to participate in community events in addition to community-engaged research, questions for focus groups, or creating an infographic about one of our community-engaged research projects. The student intern may participate in (virtual) community events in addition to community-engaged research.

For more information on The Patients Program, visit our website.

Application must include:

  • Statement of Interest (no more than 500 words)
  • PDF of your current resume
