It is Presidents Day – a time to repost my traditional column commemorating the late, great Richard E. Neustadt.

The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) is seeking a motivated, organized individual to serve as an intern and support its Evaluation, Research, and Behavior (ERB) Sector work, with a focus on behavior. The ERB team supports CEE members and works with government and non-government agencies throughout the US and Canada to help improve the application of behavioral insights and program evaluation in the energy efficiency industry. This intern will work in the ERB sector (team of five, including one other intern) and report to the Senior Program Manager for Behavior, Kira Ashby.
CEE is an award-winning consortium of efficiency program administrators from the United States and Canada that unifies program approaches across jurisdictions to increase impact in fragmented markets. By joining forces at CEE, individual electric and gas efficiency programs are able to partner not only with each other, but also with other industries, trade associations, and government agencies. Working together, administrators leverage the effect of their ratepayer funding, exchange information on successful practices and, by doing so, achieve greater energy efficiency for the public good.
Gather and organize information on members’ energy efficiency programs that employ behavioral approaches and the related evaluations. This information will be used to develop a set of key takeaways from these programs as well as a set of case studies highlighting programs that exemplify tried and true behavioral techniques or innovative programs with promising initial findings. This work will include providing quality assurance for data and following up with members via phone and email to ensure that their work is accurately represented.
Collect information on regulatory decisions that impact energy efficiency program administrators’ ability to claim savings from their behavioral programs.
Assist with preparation for ERB Committee meetings and webinars, including generating committee lists and taking notes during meetings.
Provide administrative support to other ERB team staff as they develop documents, reports, website content, or other work
The internship would potentially start in late May or early June 2019 and continue through August or early September 2019.

The Center for Healthcare Quality and Analytics (CHQA) Summer Internship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is designed to introduce, develop, and improve the skills of an undergraduate student interested in public health, patient safety, performance/process improvement, or healthcare administration. This internship will provide the intern with a practical experience around the effective delivery of quality healthcare services. This abbreviated, high paced internship will focus on participation in various projects across the CHQA and exposure to the work of many teams and offices across the enterprise. Interns may also have the opportunity to meet with senior hospital leaders.
The 10-12 week summer internship is a program planned and directed by members of the CHQA. This internship program partners with various departments across the enterprise to provide exposure to a wide variety of clinical and business operations. The primary learning modes will be observation and participation in project-based work. Project opportunities will vary and will reflect both the participant’s interests and the needs of the Hospital. Interns are prohibited from advising on or participating in the delivery of medical care. Additionally, interns are required to maintain the confidentiality of patient information at all times.
Interns will be exposed to projects focused in a variety of business and operational areas across the organization and may involve domains such as patient safety, operations, process improvement, quality, and strategy in collaboration with their assigned preceptor. Interns are required to give a presentation on their project work to departmental and/or senior leadership at the end of the internship.
Beginning in early June and ending in August, interns are expected to work 20 to 30 hours a week, and will create a schedule with their preceptor(s) during their first day. Interns will collaborate with their assigned preceptor(s) and are responsible for keeping their project work on track to meet specific deadlines throughout the summer.
