About the programme

The UK has an urgent need for new health data scientists – it’s a rapidly expanding field with the recognised potential to transform the future of health and care for all, and we believe that health data science should be as effective as possible in serving and reflecting the needs of the entire UK population.

The overall aim of our Health Data Science Black Internship Programme is to not only to tackle the underrepresentation of Black people within the health data science sector, but to also provide motivated candidates with an opportunity to expand their knowledge around health data science and gain the experience they need to kick-start their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers.

Planned for the summer of 2022, this paid internship programme will offer a high-quality, eight-week internship with one of our host organisations, providing interns the opportunity to not only learn about health data science in action, but will also carry out their own clearly defined research projects. Interns will also be offered wider collaboration and networking as part of the programme.
