INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY IN MEDICAL SOCIAL SCIENCES
We are looking for a volunteer intern to join our research team in conducting various research projects at the Feinberg School of Medicine in the Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University. The studies the intern would be assisting with are part of the Biobehavioral Mechanisms and Health Outcomes Program. Studies within this program primarily focus on understanding the Hispanic breast cancer patient’s cultural and psychosocial experience in order to improve treatment self-management following active breast cancer treatment and reduce disparities in cancer outcomes.
This intern would assist with various tasks in support of multiple studies with Hispanic breast cancer patients. Some of the tasks include reviewing patient records, screening, recruiting, consenting and completing assessments with patients, managing and aiding in the analysis of data, translating study materials into Spanish, and aiding in the development and implementation of an eHealth intervention.
Interested students would need to commit to coming into the lab for two to three days per week (12 hours weekly) for a period of at least a semester. Spoken and written fluency in Spanish is required; having research, psychological, social and/or medical interests is preferred. Training in medical language in English and Spanish will be provided. If interested, please contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a copy of your CV/resume, or by phone if you would like more information.
