Claude Wang, a rising senior at Haverford College and a Master’s student at UPenn, has joined HCIF’s Clinical Improvement team to serve as the Healthcare Quality Improvement Intern through the Whitehead Internship Program over the summer. Claude is a Chemistry major and Japanese minor, and at the same time they are also pursuing a Master’s degree in Bioengineering. Their previous internship experience includes interning at a private equity firm in Philadelphia researching climate technology and organic waste verticals; they also worked in Haverford Admissions Office as an Access and Diversity Intern for 3 years.
With interests in social justice and the US healthcare system, Claude hopes to gain in depth knowledge on stakeholder collaboration and the effective tools to combat existing problems. During their internship, they will be primarily responsible for supporting this year’s Delaware Valley Patient Safety and Quality Award program and supporting the second year launch for the Health Equity Data Strategy project. Claude is excited to learn more about project management, hone their communication skills and work closely with the rest of the HCIF team.
