dc.description.abstractFinance is a driving force in social advancement, and sometimes it has a bad reputation. But what does finance really mean? With the ultimate goal of maximizing economic efficiency, financial institutions allocate capital to the most innovative and marketable ideas. In healthcare, this takes on a unique form. Therapies, cures, and broad medical technology undergo decades of development to achieve regulatory approval and launch. With support from institutions such as hedge funds and private equity, companies can access the capital that is necessary in developing these innovations. This panel seeks to explore how finance fits into the healthcare engine and showcase the life of a buy-side analyst from an intern’s perspective.

dc.description.panabstractInternships can sometimes be a tricky, overwhelming experience filled with new and scary responsibilities. Oftentimes students walk into a new internship opportunity either knowing little about their responsibilities or are placed in an environment that forces them to learn on the spot. This panel walks you through four unique, but rich and deeply hands-on internship experiences that were adventures just like this. All four of us were thrown into a new environment with little, if any, time to acclimate. We were all expected to perform incredibly important work and to self-manage in an area we were still trying to know more about. Each of our internship stories is unique and within our panel, there are a wide range of different, but equally challenging responsibilities to discuss, such as research in a neuroscience lab, work that blends finance and healthcare, a project that specially focus on affordable housing in Boston, and social service work at a Minnesota domestic violence shelter. With our strikingly different internship experiences, this panel seeks to demonstrate how to go about navigating a successful and rich internship within a new and demanding space.
