We are working together with our host organisations to help transform the prospects of, and provide opportunities for, early career Black people in the UK to flourish in their future health data science careers through our Health Data Science Black Internship Programme.

Working with 10,000 Interns Foundation and the Health Data Alliance, our paid internships are a super way to gain hands-on experience, carrying out practical projects in the real world. It’s a great way to find out about a rapidly advancing area of science, meet fellow interns, looks superb on a CV – and can open doors to new opportunities.

We are now recruiting for our fourth cohort of interns to join us for summer 2024 (1 July – 23 August). Information on the programme’s benefits and application process is available here.

  • Current students at a UK university at any level (undergraduate, post grad diploma, Master’s, PhD or returning student)
