2024 Pharmacy Clinical Informatics Summer Internship Program

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 healthcare 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 & Analytics Group. 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 student’s background and future career objectives. The Interns can be virtually located anywhere in the United States.

For more information, contact Dr. Yuri Quintana, Chief of the Division of Clinical Informatics, yquintan@bidmc.harvard.edu.
