Where medical students will help build an Epic EHR

A Rhode Island health system is offering Brown University medical students the chance to help build its Epic EHR.

Providence-based Care New England plans to hire Epic physician builders as it transitions to the new EHR.

"Medical students will be planning, designing and building content for medical or surgical specialties within CNE's Epic EMR system, which is a hands-on opportunity not ordinarily available to medical students," Care New England CIO Tom Gregorio said in a Jan. 10 news release. The students will "learn the digital tools of the trade while still in school, putting them ahead of the game upon graduation."

The Epic informaticists will learn how an EHR is built, use documentation and ordering tools, and help develop clinical workflows. Epic is the most widely used EHR in the U.S.

The program is open to fourth-year medical students from the Providence-based university with an interest in bioinformatics and EHRs. They will work full time, 40 hours a week, from April 2024 through April 2025. The deadline to apply is Feb. 21.
