Testimonials from OHSU Summer interns:
"I was looking for a research experience that combined both medicine and engineering. As I conclude my undergraduate studies and look toward grad school, I was hoping that the exposure would help me decide which graduate path to pursue. The opportunity to work in the field of medical informatics is a great way to see how information technology is applied in the fields of health and medicine."
- Anne Kitzmiller, 2012
"I enjoyed this internship very much. I think it gave me a better understanding of medical informatics and how statistics is applicable to this field. My mentor was very helpful and gave me direction when needed. Overall I think this internship significantly contributed to furthering my interest in this field. I was already considering getting my master's in medical informatics, but I believe my experience this summer cemented my interest".

"This summer was a great experience. Working with Holly Jimison and the Health Coaching Team made the experience much more enjoyable because they were welcoming and supportive and created a comfortable environment. The summer internship gave me valuable experience and knowledge of the whole research process. Even if you do not know what you want to specialize in, the summer internship will definitely get you interested in Medical Informatics. The staff in the DMICE office also made the process easy. This is an internship I would definitely recommend to anyone interested. Plus, being on the OHSU campus during summer is pretty awesome too."
