Working at CHEPS

CHEPS brings together students from various backgrounds to become part of teams that collectively work to solve real-world problems in healthcare. We hire students of all degree levels and majors which include but are not limited to: engineering, computer science, pre-med, nursing, public health, and informatics.

Engineering students may:

  • build models
  • write code
  • analyze data

But also:

  • spend time observing in an emergency department
  • work with doctors
  • see a healthcare system from the inside

Nursing, Medical, Pre-Med, and Public Health Students may:

  • interview patients
  • help the team understand and capture the real-world components of the problem

But also:

  • learn systems engineering as it applies to healthcare
  • develop additional technical skills

No matter who you are, you’re going to be doing things you’re good at but you’ll also learn new things and step outside of your comfort zone. And you’ll get the chance to work with some wonderful people! Visit our project page for examples of the types of projects students at CHEPS have the opportunity to work on.
