Subject: Fall 2017 Recruitment of Clinical Research Interns at Children's
National Medical Center

Description:
Our research team is currently looking to recruit students interested in
careers in medicine to work as Interns in the Emergency Department at
Children’s National Medical Center in Northwest DC. The intern’s role 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.

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 12 hours
per week. The Fall 2017 internship semester begins on Monday, September 18
and ends in early to mid-December.

Submit a cover letter, resume, unofficial academic transcript, and two
academic letters of recommendation via e-mail to
