The Clinical Trials Assistant (CTA) 1 is involved with the implementation and execution of several clinical research projects including acquisition and maintenance of large amounts of clinical data from medical records, and questionnaires; specimen collection; and the recruitment and enrollment of research study participants. These multiple functions require a significant degree of flexibility and independence to complete complex tasks. The work engages multiple skills and a wide-range of project knowledge.
This position is ideal for a highly-motivated individual who may be taking time off between degrees, preferably for two years, and is interested in gaining experience in clinical research. In this position, you will have the opportunity to work with a highly productive and dynamic team of MDs, PhDs, basic and clinical research scientists, and biostatisticians. The CTA will gain considerable knowledge of clinical research methods and urology, specifically knowledge related to interstitial cystitis and prostate cancer. CTAs may have some opportunity to shadow in clinic and in the OR. Seminars and other learning opportunities including manuscript writing in the second year are also available.
