Starting a new clinical lab at HMS - Looking for an active, eager students to work on various diverse projects related to dermatology. Since a new lab is forming, there are opportunities to develop independent ideas with faculty support. There are opportunities to work on the 1) impact of insurance and cost on the delivery of dermatological care, 2) assess the use of artificial intelligence to improve patient care, and 3) clinical studies relating to improving the treatment and understanding of various diseases. Limited funding may be available. Opportunity to learn in clinic. Please see my CV for previous publications. Previous students have published articles in JAAD and accepted abstracts at the AMA and AAD conference. If interested, please send a CV and interest statement to ashih@bidmc.harvard.edu
