Vermont Business Highlight: THINKMD

Expanding Access to Healthcare for Everyone, Everywhere

THINKMD was founded in 2014 as a social impact Benefit Corporation to develop solutions to eliminate premature deaths, which is in part a consequence of a growing shortage of healthcare professionals and systemic challenges in healthcare delivery. Founded by two physicians, they envision a world where innovative approaches, systems and knowledge can lead to new disruptive approaches to expanding global access to healthcare for everyone, everywhere. As a benefit corporation, they take a market-driven approach to achieving social impact. They believe social enterprises have the potential to be more innovative, efficient, and effective in achieving financially sustainable systems-level change. They believe that they must deliver the highest quality technology supported by sustainable financial models—only then will they create lasting systematic change that achieves their global mission.

Their team includes clinicians, engineers, data scientists, strategists, and global health specialists. They utilize an integrative development approach to develop novel technology to change healthcare delivery, and leverage critical public health data that will improve clinical outcomes, surveillance, and healthcare management globally.

They’re looking for passionate people that are committed to finding solutions that address challenging global health problems.

While they have a global impact, they are based in Burlington! Check out their open positions. Great opportunity for CS students with an interest in global and public health!

GIS-Related Environmental Summer Internships in Vermont!

Recreation Capacity Intern — The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation has been collecting a variety of data linked to usage of the public’s recreation-based resources. This information is a key tool in supporting the development of the recreation aspect of Long Range Management Plans, determining how resources are allocated to maintain recreation infrastructure, and to make decisions related to trail network growth or alteration.The intern must have proficiency with ArcGIS 10.x software and using hand-held GPS units to gather and transfer data into GIS. The intern must also have a strong foundation and interest in analytical statistic and be able to use Excel. The intern must be comfortable hiking alone over various terrains to collect trail data in the field, for up to 8 hours in a day. For more details, see listing on Handshake: https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/jobs/1291979/share_preview

Universal Recycling Outreach —  This internship will focus on addressing the current and upcoming challenges of implementing the Universal Recycling Law in Vermont. It will involve substantial engagement with the public, as well as some in-office work.  The intern will set up a table at farmers’ markets, fairs, or other public venues to provide information about recycling, composting, and the requirements of the Universal Recycling Law. A gregarious, friendly personality, composure, and strong communication skills are necessary. The intern will learn and communicate about recycling, composting, and other materials management topics. For more details, see listing on Handshake: https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/jobs/1291499/share_preview

Otter Creek Mapping Intern —  This intern would assist with field data collection along the Otter Creek primarily by paddling nearly 100 miles from Mt. Tabor to Lake Champlain. Field data collection will consist of identifying both natural and manmade features along the creek as they relate to fishing, hunting, paddling, or historic resources. The intern would help identify the appropriate data to collect as well as develop data sheets for use in a future mapping project. Some of the opportunities afforded to the intern would be to work with a variety of staff working on everything from outdoor recreation to law enforcement.

NOTE: The ultimate goal of this project is to create an Otter Creek Fishing Trail that highlights all river features, public access, and any possible points of interest to anyone boating on the Otter Creek. Once all the field data is collected, I would like to explore turning this into a semester or thesis project (Middlebury’s GIS program?) so that we could actually create the fishing trail map.  For more details, see listing on Handshake: https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/jobs/1291553/share_preview

Compensation:  All of these internships come with $3,000 stipend.   If you are offered and accept this internship, please be aware that your funding for this position is provided by CCI, and therefore you will be required to complete funded internship paperwork.
