Internship Description

A Princeton intern will work closely with our medical database housing over 1.5million records performing a variety of data requests, cleanups and resource management projects. This can be but isn't limited to patient matching, correcting dates of birth, operation types etc. This is also an opportunity for interns interested in research to develop abstracts based on interesting trends they pick up working throughout the summer and their own interests. Interns will also have plenty of opportunities to represent Smile Train virtually through webinars and conferences where they are asked to report back on their experience and the high level points discussed.
