DMICE Internship Applications Open February 2021

The Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) is offering High School and Undergraduate Data Science paid Internships beginning June 2021.

These internships will provide full-time summer internships in data science and biomedical informatics to college undergraduates and high school students to increase their skills with respect to data literacy and stewardship.  The program’s goals are to provide exposure to data science and informatics with respect to best practices, impact of research on medicine and health, as well as possible career path for interns.  In addition to the research project, each intern will attend weekly Informatics Research Conferences and will present their work at the end of the internship in a mini-symposium.

For your information, here is the webpage for the DMICE Internship Program.
