Subject: Internship in the Emergency Department at Children’s National
My name is Angel Jiao and I am a part of the Research Team for the Pediatric
Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) at Children’s National
Medical Center. This email is to provide information about a truly unique
employment opportunity for students interested in careers in medicine. Our
research team is currently looking to recruit students to work as Interns in
the Emergency Department at Children’s National Medical Center in Northwest
The role of an intern is to support the research coordinators in recruiting
and enrolling patients in studies taking place in the Emergency Department.
While completing these tasks the intern must ensure proper protocol is
followed throughout the study procedure. Interns seeking additional
opportunities may collaborate with Attending Physicians to analyze data in
ongoing trials. While working as a Research Intern, you will cultivate your
knowledge of study administration while developing and implementing study
procedure with the hospital staff for smaller Emergency Department trials.
Classroom and clinical training is provided for all interns. The training is
extensive and fully comprehensive, with multiple sessions both in the
classroom and in the Emergency Department. During these trainings interns
learn the flow of the emergency room, the informed consent process, and
appropriate medical/legal documentation. This is a unique and exciting
opportunity which has demonstrated itself to be excellent experience for
students preparing for careers in medicine. Our past employees that excelled
as interns have gone on to receive outstanding recommendations for medical
school and residency programs.
Working as a senior intern for PECARN has furthered my commitment to
promoting children’s health through research. I admire the hospital
center’s devotion to ensuring patient care throughout the study process.
This internship is not for everyone; the complexity of the material and
fast-paced environment necessitate that only the sharpest and most motivated
students succeed as Research Interns. We are looking for dependable and
hard-working employees that have a desire for an eventual career in medicine,
and are interested in learning more about Clinical and Translational
Research. There are multiple shifts, both day and evening, usually lasting
4-6 hours. It is expected that each intern can commit to at least 15-20 hours
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look
forward to hearing from you!
