The opportunity for you

  • Remote-based/online internship
  • $5,000 USD monthly stipend
  • 12-16 weeks

We want to hire and mentor a motivated informatics trainee who wants to learn, contribute, and advance the industry’s approach to solving the thorny problems of health data interoperability. This internship will focus specifically on synthesizing best practices for using standard terminologies within HL7’s specifications. You will be working with world-class experts, learning how consensus-driven standards are transforming data exchange, and building a key resource for the global health standards community.

This 12 to 16 week remote-based (online) internship requires that you have completed at least 1 academic year of core informatics courses, including at least one one course covering interoperability and standard terminologies. Through mentoring, conducting interviews, reviewing existing processes and tools, you’ll create an online resource (e.g. using Atlassian’s Confluence wiki) that supports our coordinated, high quality use of terminology. We are looking for someone who takes pride in their writing and who can summarize complex medical and technical information into clear, concise, and relevant prose. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the crucial interplay between syntactic and semantic standards and hone your execution of informatics projects with cross-disciplinary stakeholders. The selected intern(s) must be eligible to work in the United States and will receive a $5,000 monthly stipend.

HL7 standards deliver solutions for health information technology that are used in health care systems around the world.
