If you've ever been interested in applying computer science to healthcare, you should be looking at Biomedical Informatics! Researchers in Biomedical Informatics come from a wide range of fields (computer science, engineering, medicine, genomics/proteomics, social sciences) and are working on using technology to improve healthcare delivery and to solve major medical challenges.

Our 8-week summer internship program will connect you to a research project and a faculty mentor within the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

What we are: the largest Biomedical Informatics program in the country, located at one of the Top 15 medical schools for research.

What we do: a wide variety of research projects, with some projects focused more on computational biology and other projects focused on health information technology used in hospitals and clinics.

What makes our internship program special: in addition to paid positions doing research, we have a twice-weekly seminar series to introduce our interns the variety of biomedical informatics. Our interns are also connected with the Vanderbilt Summer Science Academy, which offers offers additional seminars and resources.
