Here's what past AIDS Institute Interns had to say about their internship experiences:

“The internship at the AIDS Institute OPER was a great experience. I fostered my knowledge in data analyses using ArcGIS and SAS. I also learned new methods of statistical analyses (notably survey data analyses) that increased my readiness to work in public health. What I appreciated the most of my experience is the atmosphere that the director created: friendly and respectful. Everyone at OPER was treated equally no matter the demographic characteristics and employment status; interns were given the entire responsibility for big projects (under supervision), which strengthened confidence and built experience. Overall I would recommend that internship to everyone.” - Maxime F., PhD Student, Research Support Specialist, AIDS Institute Office of Program Evaluation and Research

“This internship gave me priceless experience working with ‘real data’ to hone and apply the theoretical knowledge obtained during my study at UAlbany. Some novel strategies for prevention, care, treatment and outbreak response are utilized at the AIDS Institute. My internship experience will give new thoughts and approaches to improving research and public health measures in my home country.” - Aizhan K., MS Student, AIDS Institute Bureau of HIV and AIDS Epidemiology

“I had an incredible experience during my time with the Medical Marijuana Program. Everyone was very welcoming and very willing to teach me about the program. I learned a great deal about health policy, NY's legislative process, the impact that cannabis prohibition has had on certain communities, and more. The internship also improved my writing, time management, and collaboration skills and helped me define my public health interests.” - Isabella S., MPH student, AIDS Institute Medical Marijuana Program
