Type: Internship
Number of Openings:
Location: Remote,     
Compensation: $800 stipend
Position Description: Are you a student interested in research to prevent Veteran Suicide, a critical public health priority in the U.S.? The VA’s Center of Excellence for Suicide Prevention has launched a new virtual Suicide Prevention and Health Disparities Research Training Program (learn more about us on our website). Our goal is to enhance knowledge, interest, and potential entrance of diverse researchers into veteran suicide research. This competitive 8-week program exposes participants to state-of-the-art clinical and public health suicide research approaches, study of health disparities in this area, and “hands on” mentored research experience.

Qualifications: Participants accepted and enrolled into the program must be 1) U.S. citizens; 2) actively enrolled in accredited schools of medicine, allied health professions, public health or other health professional schools; and 3) from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in suicide research. Individuals underrepresented in suicide research include: a) racial and ethnic groups including Black or African-American, LatinX, and American Indian; b) individuals with physical and mental impairment; c) students who are Veterans or children of Veterans; d) members of LGBTQ; and e) individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Participants must have completed at least one year in their current educational program and must commit to complete the eight-week program.

Organization Description: The Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA) established the Center of Excellence for Suicide Prevention (CoE) in August 2007 with the overarching mission to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with Veteran suicide and self-directed violence.

Since its inception, the CoE has been guided by a public health approach to suicide prevention. This approach, later adopted the 2012 U.S. National Strategy for Suicide Prevention, is widely held to be the most promising strategy to reduce suicides among Americans. Most recently, both the VA and its Office of Mental Health & Suicide Prevention (OMHSP) "embraced a comprehensive public health approach" as the model for the National Strategy for Preventing Veteran Suicide: 2018-2028. The CoE is currently comprised of an interdisciplinary research team representing the diverse fields of public health, psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, health communication, health services, economics, sociology, nursing and social work.
