Dual monitor workstations, a (volatile) coffee machine from the future, and more purple than there was at my Shad program at Western- It’s been a month for the books, and I can’t believe it’s already nearly over. For now, allow me to rewind to when this all began.
When I received the acceptance email to intern at Decision Resources Group, I couldn’t believe it. The company website had promised a challenging and supportive workspace along with the opportunity to engage with real-world applications of healthcare and economics- both subjects that I had enjoyed in high school. After a month in the office, I can say with certainty that my expectations have been met and far exceeded.
DRG defines its role as providing “healthcare business intelligence solutions”. Their Canadian office, located in Toronto, specializes in medical technology trends. I was given tasks such as reviewing recent reports for aggregate trends and researching and updating quantitative and qualitative data for a database platform. During the course of the month, I was mentored by two analysts, and worked in the same room as the Product Support team- all individuals who made the month-long experience as enjoyable as it was memorable.
