Work with the Innovation Hub
Are you obsessed with making healthcare better for everyone? Are you comfortable in creative, collaborative settings, and also wired to take action and follow through? The Sibley Innovation Hub is seeking the help of a student intern with a passion for envisioning the future of healthcare and making it a reality. Working out of Sibley Memorial Hospital, a proud partner of Johns Hopkins Medicine, the intern will support a variety of Hub activities, including user interviews, building and testing prototypes, and doing storytelling work to communicate and document our human-centered design process.
The Sibley Innovation Hub has the following internship opportunities for interested candidates. Though we are not able to provide compensation, you'll have unparalleled exposure and learning opportunities. We are also happy to facilitate class credit where possible.
Internship Opportunities: Spring '19
Healthcare Experience Design Intern
Work closely with our lead designer to explore and develop healthcare innovations led by frontline staff. You'll help use the tools of the design process to solve complicated problems, supporting Hub staff and driving solutions forward.
If you love creating videos that make a difference, this will be your dream internship. Get right in the mix of design projects by filming, editing and publishing short videos, in addition to print materials, about Hub efforts. Examples from the past year: a three minute demonstration on robots that deliver prescriptions; a two minute explanation of a video conference offering from the chaplaincy; a 15 minute tutorial on interviewing technique. Animated content is always a possibility, too! The shorts on our ListenImagineDo.com site were created by a former Hub intern. You'll get to be part of a variety of other healthcare innovation projects, supporting Hub staff and helping construct physical prototypes and functional mock ups using our three 3D printers and in-house maker space as the need arises.
Familiarity with video software (e.g. Final Cut Pro) strongly preferred.
Design/ Maker Intern
Build solutions with your hands, create prototypes with our 3D printers, and design documents and graphics that will be used to improve healthcare at Sibley and beyond. Use human-centered design to test all these things with patients and staff. Make a real contribution while building your own portfolio.
