The Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) will be hosting High School and College Undergraduate Biomedical Informatics and Data Science Internships Summer 2022. These internships will provide full-time summer internships in data science and biomedical informatics to college undergraduates 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.
Due to the funding agency, this program is open to U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents only. High School students must be 16 years of age when the internship project begins.
