The goal of the internship is to provide the student with the opportunity to apply and/or validate health care quality measures, and to contribute to the re-design of the healthcare delivery systems. As an outcome, we hope to help shape the healthcare system into one that rewards the value of the care rather than the volume of care provided. In addition, our research is focused on the design and test of patient-reporting tools for outcome measurement. We aim to boost the efficiency of patient-physician interaction, increase time for patient education, reduce the time and cost of documentation, retain clinical information in an analyzable form and to have longitudinal data that allows for the critical review of outcomes of competing treatments. Our studies are intended to positively impact the health of patients with neurological conditions.
Experience or interest in training in neurology is highly desired. A strong commitment to teamwork is essential.
The student is expected to:
– Participate in weekly meetings with the Supervisor. Prepare a weekly agenda for the meetings to include progress, deliverables, questions, and ideas
– Participate in meetings with other lab members and foreign site collaborators
– Create and maintain a shared folder with documents related to the project
– Maintain the security and confidentiality of all materials, data, and communication
The commitment is estimated 10-15 hours a week for 4-8 weeks.
We also welcome the student to stay involved in projects that exceed this time-frame.
