Posted by on Friday, March 1, 2019 in Announcements.


ASPIRE Internship Opportunity:

Objective GI
Clinical Registry and Data Science Intern

341 Cool Springs Blvd, #110
Franklin, TN 37067

Objective GI is a life sciences services and technology company establishing clinical research partnerships with gastroenterology medical practices and providing research infrastructure, optimal trial selection, study implementation, and key personnel management. Our proprietary processes and technology eliminate the practice workflow disruptions typically associated with clinical trials and create a profitable ancillary vertical that enhances patient care in silent chronic diseases.

The Clinical Registry Intern will be responsible for the creation of a clinical registry database intended to support the further study of silent chronic diseases.  The intern will be involved in both the strategic design of the registry and the technical decisions around data definition and architecture.  As the registry evolves and initial data is populated, the intern will transition to more data science related duties centered around algorithm definition based on registry data.


  • Create an initial charter document defining the registry objectives, design, and protocol
  • Lead implementation and rollout of registry data submission across new sites
  • Communicate with key site personnel about the registry requirements and the best practices for implementation within the site
  • Lead the creation of a registry roadmap that defines how the registry evolves in the short term
  • Assist in the database design and identification of key data elements for the registry
  • Assist in the creation of processes to validate/curate the data prior to entry into the registry to ensure accuracy
  • Create a data dictionary that identifies what data resides in the registry and in what format
  • Utilize a combination of data export files and scripts to extract data from internal sources and add to the registry
  • Analyze data within the registry to understand whether there is potential to predict which patients belong in which trials
  • Learn the full life cycle of management of clinical trials
  • Potential opportunities to travel to remote sites to observe and learn about points of access
  • Gain exposure to the professional culture in a high-growth healthcare tech startup


  • Internship will run April-July 2019, with the opportunity to extend pending review.
  • Internship is paid, part-time (8-10 hours per week, variable)
