The Research Associate(RA) Internship is an innovative volunteer program for enthusiastic and inspired college and post-baccalaureate students. Created by the Bellevue Hospital Center Emergency Department, the RA Internship allows students an opportunity to experience and observe many different aspects of clinical research. The program is comprised of clinical research shifts based in the Emergency Department. It offers the committed student a unique experience, which is intended to furnish a wealth of knowledge about the numerous options for a career in healthcare. This 9-12 month unpaid research internship will expose participants to a diverse spectrum of clinical and non-clinical based research investigations being pursued at the Emergency Department at NYU/Bellevue. Students will be allocated with a specific grant or research effort under mentorship of the PI/Co-PI or Project Manager to support long term research.
This experience will allow the student to develop basic research skills. The student will be provided with a basic research course, oriented to the Institutional Review Board and other Human Subjects courses, exposed to new and innovative research to fulfill and help meet the respective project's deliverables.
RA Internship participants will work within the Emergency Department setting to support data collection, data entry, organizing paperwork, and helping to create and maintain databases. RA's will also gain exposure to power point design and presentation skills.
The RA Internship is a very demanding program, requiring a great deal of commitment on the part of the student. We accept applications on a rolling basis. We are always looking for applicants. RA Interns can expect to work a total of 20-25 hours/week. Times are flexible and will be discussed with the Research Coordinator.
We invite applications from mature, committed, and motivated students who fully accept the demands of the RA Internship and have a willingness to participate enthusiastically in all aspects of the program. We encourage applications not only from students with a strong interest in healthcare (aspiring doctors, nurses, nurse-practitioners, physician assistants, clinical psychologists/psychiatrists, and clinical social workers), but also from students who are uncertain about pursuing a career in healthcare. You do not have to be currently enrolled in school to be eligible, however one year of college must be completed in order to be eligible.
