Class of 2013
Major: Business Information Systems
Internship Employer: Windham Hospital
Internship Title: Entry Level Intern
This semester John Bronzo got the chance to intern at Windham Hospital right here in Willimantic Connecticut. He spent much of his time shadowing the Director of Clinical Informatics. His main responsibilities included helping with any clerical office activities, and interacting with nurses and physicians. He got the chance to get a close look at the operations at Windham Hospital, and asked many questions along the way to further his understanding of how the hospital works.
John even had the opportunity to sit in on training sessions with clinical analysts to learn the inner structure of the computer systems used at the hospital. Seeing how nurses, physicians, and patients interact with the healthcare information systems has allowed John to better understand the system as a whole, and how it is applied to the operations at the hospital.
John hopes to one day obtain a job position related to healthcare informatics. He has enjoyed his time at Windham Hospital and is eager to get into the field full-time. The skills and knowledge he has gained during this experience will be nothing but beneficial going forward. He heard about this internship opportunity through faculty in the Business Information Systems department. John urges others looking for an internship to be eager to learn from the experience. "Come eager to learn and be open to any opportunity that presents itself."
