An Internship at the Intersection of Healthcare and AI

[SEI_Mentorship]

An NIH-funded program offers a yearlong, paid internship focused on diversifying the future workforce at the intersection of healthcare and AI.

Exposing the next generation of professionals in healthcare settings to the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and the biomedical sciences is crucial to diversifying that workforce.

To promote that diversity, the University of California San Diego (USCD) Viterbi Family Department of Ophthalmology and Shiley Eye Institute have announced the AI Ready and Equitable Atlas for Diabetes Insights (AI-READI) Yearlong Research Internship Program. This NIH-funded paid internship program will run from July 2023 to June 2024 and is designed to expose pre- and post-doctorate candidates to AI and data science applications.

Mentorship

Anyone aspiring to a career as a healthcare provider or working on the tech side of the healthcare setting will benefit from understanding how AI tools can and will be applied. Key aspects of the program include direct mentorship, a two-week, in-person bootcamp at USCD, research projects presented at a year-end symposium, and strong professional development (a vital aspect of all USCD research internship programs).

Anyone with an undergraduate degree can apply. UCSD has a firm commitment to diversity and encourages applications from candidates from underrepresented groups.
