AHTA regularly hosts international visitors, postgraduates and academics from all over the world.


AHTA has hosted several postgraduate interns from various countries including Germany, Italy, China and France. AHTA generally has the capacity to host one or two interns per year for four to six months.

Applicants are required to have the support of their university or organisation, and are responsible for funding their own travel, accommodation and living expenses. To the right applicant, AHTA will provide infrastructure support (i.e. computer, office space, workstation) and supervision on a project that has relevance to health technology assessment.
