Research Study Coordinator (Dept. of Hematology and Vascular Anomalies) at Boston Children's Hospital
almost 2 years ago
The physicians you will work with in the Dept of Hematology and the Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) are very approachable and fun to work with. They are looking for organized candidates that will jump into clinic/patient rounds with them, ask questions, approach patients to discuss research, and are comfortable coordinating with other research units. Prior clinical research is ideal, but otherwise highlighting a background in project management, group/time management helpful. Basic understanding of clinical trials, regulatory submission process, data collection and patient interaction is helpful. Most candidates apply for this role before pursuing medical school. Having a basic understanding of hematological disorders (sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, thalassemia, blood clots) and basic treatment options will help with on-boarding. The physicians are extremely busy, so the ideal candidate will be self-sufficient at organizing and establishing priorities, can problem solve on their own or finding additional resources, and can work independently.
