The Department of Emergency Medicine at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital, Cook County, seeks undergraduate clinical research associates (RAs).
Selected students will actively participate in retrospective and prospective studies in the emergency department (ED). In addition to recruiting patients for studies and performing chart reviews, RAs will have the opportunity to shadow emergency medicine physicians in Chicago's busiest ED. This is a year-long volunteer position with the opportunity to receive UIC course credit.
Students should have an enthusiastic attitude and strong work ethic, as conducting research in an emergency department can be chaotic. Excellent communication skills and a professional demeanor are critical when approaching patients.
Additionally, candidates are required to:
- Attend six, 3-hour shifts a month
- Attend one monthly research meeting ~ 1hr
- Have a minimum GPA of 2.5
- Be of freshman or sophomore standing
- Commit at least 1 year to the program
- Fluency in Spanish is not required but preferred
