Pre-med and pre-health students made their final internship presentations to their site supervisors at the medical informatics company PEPID. Interns assist in several aspects of developing content for clinical decision support tools.

Interns trained in person at company headquarters in Phoenix, AZ prior to the semester and then conducted their work remotely throughout the term. This semester, they were able to see in real-time how the company adapted to the pandemic. One intern’s final presentation focused on COVID-19. Another intern’s writing was featured in the company’s blog.

Started by PEPID’s president and Canisius alumnus John Wagner ’76, in 2013, the internship is currently supervised by the director of product management Sean Wagner ’16. Since this program’s inception, 45 Canisius pre-med/pre-health students have completed this internship.

This semester’s interns were Henry Burton ’20, Madeline Beaulieu ’20, Wasiq Khawar ’21 and Marianthi Vasiliadis ’21.
