In particular, I became familiar with the organization and analysis of data involving human clinical trials. EXPERIENCE: I had the opportunity to program outputs, such as tables and listings, for clients to submit to regulatory authorities. Overall, the internship experience integrated SAS programming knowledge, statistical applications, and biomedical research in order to analyze the safety and efficacy of new study drugs and devices.
