INTERNSHIP FOR STUDENTS OF LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCE:
Deadline: none given will post until May 20, 2013
We are seeking students desiring to develop internet research skills related to medical subject matter in the field of clinical trials for an educational video. Flexible hours on the internet. Upon completion of the assignment, students will receive a letter of recommendation and, upon completion of the video, a screen credit for research. Internship unpaid.
SUMMARY OF PROJECT: Reports from various sources have shown that legally valid informed consent for human experimentation under federal regulations is often not obtained.
An insightful book, What the Doctor Didn’t Say, co-authored by the Director of the Health and Human Services Office for Human Research Protection points to a systemic problem: …it appears that there are practices of obtaining consent that are commonly accepted both by researchers and by government regulators, that lead to defects in a substantial percentage of studies, likely involving hundreds of thousands of subjects. A problem potentially involving hundreds of thousands of research subjects is of consequence.
We are currently developing a script for an educational video on informed consent targeted for bioethics, public policy, law, psychology and healthcare courses. The program will focus on actual informed consents used in clinical trials at universities where deaths occurred, followed by government investigations and litigation.
Based on the documents produced, this program will feature a discussion by experts of the flaws in the informed consents. The purpose of the program will be to illuminate how legally invalid informed consents leads to exploitation of vulnerable populations and, at the same time, often correlates to other serious deficiencies in clinical trials.
In each case example, the program will also feature a discussion of how the informed consents could have been written to meet federal requirements. An example of a model informed consent that accurately discloses each of the essential elements required under applicable federal regulations will be provided. This program will differ from the usual theoretical approach to informed consent since the actual case examples will delve into the varied medical conditions and outcomes of individual patients.
TYPE OF CASE EXAMPLE: A google search for “Dan Markingson, University of Minnesota” will pull up the type of case example that will be included in this video.
PRIOR SIMILAR PROJECT: We previously produced a video providing instruction for nurses in how to identify a potentially fatal reaction to all antipsychotic medications. The website for that video is www.detectnms.com. If someone would like to view that video the website offers a streaming feature and, if interested in this project, we will forward a password so the video can be viewed.
CONTACT INFO: If interested, send background information and career goals to Medical Instructional Media: Attn: Research Internship, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Volunteer - Internship
This is a volunteer position that could be used as an Internship or just for someone who would like some extra experience in a middle school library.
For various reasons, the Pequea Valley Intermediate School library has been neglecting it's library collection. Books are outdated, the catalog is a mess and the records are not up to date.
I am looking for someone who might like to spend some time here, checking shelves, working with the catalog, completing inventory and other tasks to help organize a library in distress.
The Pequea Valley Intermediate School is located in Kinzers, PA which is about 20 miles east of Lancaster. The school is small and has a challenging population of students in that over 30% of our students are living at or below the poverty level. The school culture is caring and dedicated and would be a great place for a future teacher to observe.
Anyone interested could work on a flexible schedule during the week. There is no deadline for this position, as the job will be here until it is done!
This could be a short term or long term experience. Any help is appreciated.
If interested, contact Jen Sweigart at 768-5535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
