CHIP trainees, faculty and staff often remain with us long term. Others have used what they learned here to launch extraordinary careers running major programs at top academic institutions, technology and Pharma companies (e.g., Google, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Mozilla, Novartis, Takeda), tech startups, payors, and government.
The Boston Children's Hospital Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) is Harvard Medical School affiliated, multidisciplinary applied research and education program. CHIP is uniquely positioned at the nexus of a world-leading children’s hospital, a first-rate academic institution, wider health networks, and thoughtful collaborations with industry.
Our research has been at the forefront of posing a wide spectrum of health questions and building solutions. Our faculty advance the science of biomedical informatics for molecular characterization of the patient, gene discovery, medical decision making, diagnosis, therapeutic selection, care redesign, public health management, population health, and re-imagined clinical trials. Our research has influenced public health policies at the highest level. Governmental health institutions, like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have amended their recommendations for population health based on the research of our faculty. Our faculty have advised governments worldwide on establishing biodefense and biosurveillance infrastructures. The White House, US State Department, USAID, and NASA have recognized our faculty for their research contributions in health care.
CHIP has a longstanding track record of developing and repurposing existing technologies that have been widely commercialized. We have established partnerships with companies like Uber, Lyft, Quest Diagnostics, and Eli Lily and have developed platforms that have been widely adopted by Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Amazon.
CHIP Marketing Internship
Marketing Interns will support the team in the full lifecycle of an integrated marketing campaign, sitting in on proposal brainstorms, compiling reports, working on event logistics, and pulling campaign metrics.
CHIP AI Internship
The CHIP AI Internship is an opportunity for undergraduate students at Harvard College to develop new machine learning and artificial intelligence approaches and apply them to fundamental challenges in biomedicine. Internships will be on a rolling basis and every intern will be matched with a core CHIP faculty member.
