Program Description:
Timmy Global Health is an Indianapolis-based not-for-profit organization that expands access to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to tackle today's most pressing global health challenges. Timmy's work is founded on the belief that all people, regardless of who they are, what resources they have, and where they live, should have access to quality healthcare. It strives to make this vision a reality by strengthening the capacity of local health systems through short-term medical service programs and long-term health solutions. Timmy Global Health supports 10 community based project sites in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Nigeria.

An intern with Timmy Global Health will assist with a range of tasks, including research on the most effective public health approaches for Timmy's areas of work, landscape analyses on similar programs' structure and pricing, development of an alumni network, research and writing for proposals and reports, ad hoc administrative support, and other small projects as needed. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter with high quality control, resourcefulness, maturity, top-notch communication skills and the ability to work independently. The intern will be based in Indianapolis, Indiana [with one possible trip to Latin America early in the internship*]. This internship lasts 9-10 weeks (with option to extend up to 12 weeks), with start and end dates to be determined.
