About the Internship Program:
The summer-long Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) Summer Internship Program, directed by Dr. Po-Yin Yen, is currently in its third year of operation. Students selected to participate in the program are extensively trained in research tools and methods that are then applied in biomedical and clinical research opportunities available in the labs of BMI faculty. Many of these projects involve observations of procedures and practices throughout the Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC) and translate into biomedical informatics driven solutions to address problems facing researchers and medical professionals in OSUWMC. The students continuously build and improve their knowledge of biomedical informatics through the structured educational component of the internship, which includes exposure to biomedical informatics case studies that are presented by BMI faculty in weekly lunch and learn seminars throughout the summer. The internship culminates in the poster session, which allows the trainees to report out on their summer activities. Many former interns have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in biomedical informatics and/or to medical school.
This year, the department received applications from over 200 individuals for internship positions from numerous universities across the nation, multiple colleges and departments at OSU, and high schools in the central Ohio region. The cohort of twenty individuals we selected come from various academic backgrounds (biology, biomedical engineering, computer science, nursing, pre-medicine, psychology, and statistics).
Please join us to celebrate the hard work of all of our summer interns and to wish them well as they leave to begin the new academic year at their respective home institutions!
Direct any questions/concerns to Dr. Po-Yin Yen, the Internship Director, at email@example.com.
Workshop: The Role of Health Information Technology and Biomedical Informatics in Clinical Transformation
Are you focused on improving health outcomes, decreasing costs or improving quality of care?
Are you using secondary health data (e.g., IHIS, MIDAS or IW) in your research or daily operations? Do you use analytics methods such as decision models, risk prediction, or workflow or cost analyses?
Do you wish your computational efforts could have a greater immediate impact on patient care?
Are you seeking collaborators in any of these areas?
If you answered YES to any of these questions or are interested in LEARNING more about these topics, PLEASE JOIN US as we aim to increase awareness of ongoing initiatives and foster collaboration!
