About the Internship
The goal of the Pharmacy Clinical Informatics Summer Internship Program is to develop future pharmacy leaders in informatics through exposure to population health and clinical informatics principles through concepts such as data model design, clinical workflows, and interoperability. Working directly with pharmacists and clinical leaders, the Interns will learn how clinical informatics principles are used to maximize health care resources, patient care outcomes, and implementations. Two student pharmacists will be selected for this internship in pharmacy informatics.
The student pharmacists selected will gain experience through a curriculum designed by Harvard Medical School faculty members at the Division of Clinical Informatics (DCI) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Pfizer Clinical Informatics Medical Outcomes Specialists (CI-MOS). The student pharmacists will engage in clinical informatics and pharmacy experiences through participation in the structured twelve-week internship program, with additional exposure to population health and advanced research methods. Interns will have access to online learning resources. The training offered will be tailored to the students’ background and future career objectives. The Interns can be virtually located anywhere in the United States.

The interns will be assigned a Preceptor to guide and tailor the learning encounters developed by faculty at DCI and Pfizer CI-MOS. The interns will work closely with their Preceptor to conceptualize, develop, and complete a project on improving the quality of patient care through informatics. The interns are eligible to receive a modest financial stipend.
