Jacob Franklin, MD

MS Student, Applied Clinical Informatics

Fall 2023 - Spring 2025

The space where medicine and technology converge has always been my favorite place. Following my work at Intermountain’s Transformation Lab where I was principally engaged in Tele-health delivery and 3D prototyping, and then completing an internship for IBM business partner Sirius Computer Solutions, I helped launch an ‘Innovations in Clinical Care’ tract at University of Nebraska’s medical school where I interned at that their tech transfer office, continued work in 3D printing, E-learning development, and assisted on various other projects. Having spent the last four years at the University of Michigan, growing as a clinician and budding informatician, I plan to spend my time at DBMI developing as both an analyst and a leader. The disconnect between what is possible with tech and data at both a population and individual level and what actually happens in the clinic, especially in psychiatry, motivates me to assist in advancing personalized precision medicine and community health.
