JIFSAN’s internship program gives students the opportunity to conduct research in a laboratory, work with skilled professionals in the field of food safety, and further long-term education and career goals.
This fall, JIFSAN offered four weeks’ worth of courses on Risk Analysis Overview, Risk Management, Risk Assessment, Risk Communication and Introductory through Advanced Quantitative Risk Analysis. Participants had the option of signing up for as little or as many courses as they preferred during the four weeks.
Students interested in food safety had the opportunity to take part in the new “Introduction to Global Food Law and Regulation” course that started on September 29, 2014. The Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition’s Risk Analysis Program launched the three-day course to educate students on food safety regulations related to the production and importation/exportation of food.
