REAL Positions Available, Palliative Care Division, Emory School of Medicine

The palliative care division of the School of Medicine are seeking research assistants for a number of studies in progress with a range of designs, disease types, and student roles.

Research assistants in the palliative care division gain hands-on experience on clinical trials, observational studies and qualitative research projects. The palliative care team’s research areas of focus include 1) identifying the needs of people living with serious illness and their family members, 2) comparing systems-based interventions for delivering palliative care, and 3) exploring how social determinants of health affect choices and outcomes in serious illness and end of life. Research assistants work with faculty and staff on a range of tasks, including screening patient charts to identify potential study participants, recruitment and data collection, in-depth interviews, and data coding and analysis. 

Human research experience is welcome but not required. Strong organization and communication skills are essential. Students may have opportunities to present or publish work regionally or nationally.
