Are you interested in serving rural and underserved populations?
Washington County Regional Medical Center is looking for one or two students in the upcoming semesters to work on an ongoing project that pulls data from their electronic medical record system’s database to be displayed in a dashboard that gives both executives and clinical staff access to real time data.
