STARTThe Strategic Analysis, Research and Training (START) domestic program provides consultation services to local public health organizations through faculty-student teams.

The Strategic Analysis, Research and Training (START) domestic program was launched at NWCPHP in October 2014.

Modeled after the START global program, the domestic version uses an innovative mentorship framework to provide high-quality analysis and research support to public health organizations while developing the applied research and analytic skills of graduate research assistants in domestic public health.

As part of the START domestic program, University of Washington graduate students work under the guidance of faculty and staff to respond to specific, immediate, and longer-term requests from local public health clients.

In its first year, faculty-student teams worked on projects related to early childhood investment and jail health collaborations.

Both programs are currently housed in the START Center within the Department of Global Health.
