The Summer Institute in LGBT Population Health is one-of-a kind opportunity to train in LGBT health research. The LGBT Pop Center annually hosts the Summer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts in July and August. The Summer Institute provides participants with foundational training in interdisciplinary theory, knowledge and methods for conducting population research in sexual and gender minority health.
The Summer Institute is held over four weeks on the campuses of Fenway Health and Boston University. This intensive training program includes a cohort of 12-16 graduate students and 3-6 early career scholars each year. Program components include:
- a dynamic Cornerstone Seminar in LGBT Health and Social Life that overviews key topics, methods, and perspectives in the interdisciplinary study of LGBT Health and includes guest lectures from expert researchers in the field.
- short-course instruction in statistics and quantitative data analysis at the intermediate and advanced-intermediate levels; and
- hands-on training in analysis of LGBT population health data in the Interactive Data Lab.
There is no cost for tuition and slots are available for free housing in Boston University dormitories during the Institute. The Summer Institute is funded by a grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (grant number R25HD064426). Summer Institute sponsors include The Fenway Institute, the Department of Community Health Sciences at Boston University School of Public Health, and the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research at the University of Michigan.
The 2012 Summer Institute will be held July 16-August 10. Applications are due April 16, 2011.
