2019 Internship Overview
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. Working directly with pharmacists and clinical leaders, the Intern will gain an appreciation of how clinical informatics principles are used to maximize health care resources, patient care outcomes and implementations. One student pharmacist will be selected for this internship in pharmacy informatics.
The student pharmacist 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). Through participation in the structured twelve-week internship program, the student pharmacist will engage in the daily activities of clinical informatics and pharmacy practice, with additional exposure to population health and research. The training offered will be tailored to the student’s background and future career objectives.
- The intern will be assigned a Preceptor to guide and tailor the learning encounters developed by faculty at DCI and Pfizer CI-MOS.
