Children’s Hospital Los Angeles – Trauma Program

We are seeking placement of up to five students within our Trauma Program.  The Trauma Program provides a unique experience in that almost all aspects of public health are involved in our program.  Service lines within Trauma include:  Acute Care, Injury Prevention, Disaster Preparedness and Research and Evaluation.  Students will have the opportunity to work specifically with the preceptors below, but will also have work experiences with all preceptors and with the other students involved with the program.  All three proposed preceptors are MPH graduates.

All interested applicants should submit their cover letter, resume and application to harbogast@chla.usc.edu

We will be selecting students to focus in the following areas:

Injury Prevention-Summer interns will engage in a variety of community projects, health fairs, and educate children and families on injury prevention topics such as child passenger safety, pedestrian safety, drowning prevention, distracted driving, school safety, etc.

Research and Evaluation – The summer research intern will conduct literature searches, assist with study design, develop data collection tools, analyze data using statistical software,  prepare manuscripts and assist in IRB study submissions.  The areas of focus are acute trauma care, injury prevention and disaster preparedness.

Trauma and Disaster Management – Summer internship opportunities include projects related to trauma program management focusing on performance improvement, special projects, and data analysis.   Interns will also have the opportunity to support planning efforts for hospital and county disasters.
