Founded in 1955, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) is one of the nation’s premier institutions for medical education, basic research and clinical investigation. A full-time faculty of some 2,000 conducts research, teaches, and delivers health care in every major biomedical specialty. The college has some 730 medical students, 193 Ph.D. students, 106 MD/Ph.D. students and 275 postdoctoral fellows.
Einstein’s major strength, in addition to training physicians and scientists, is its science. During fiscal year 2015, the faculty’s consistently high level of scientific achievement resulted in the awarding of more than $150 million in peer-reviewed grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Einstein is part of Montefiore Medicine Academic Health System, an integrated academic delivery system comprising seven campuses, including 8 hospitals, a multi-county ambulatory network, a new state-of-the art “hospital without beds”, a skilled nursing facility, school of nursing, home health agency, and the state’s first freestanding emergency department. As the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore is a premier academic health system, employing Einstein’s clinical faculty and training Einstein’s medical students, over 1,300 residents, 420 allied health students, and 1,600 nursing students annually.

Psychosocial Oncology/BOLD Research Coordinator, Epidemiology & Population Health
The PSOP/BOLD Research Coordinator would join an exciting, compassionate, and hardworking team to help provide free and culturally-accessible cancer support services to the diverse and underserved community of the Bronx.
Specifically, he/she will work with the Program Director, a health psychologist, to coordinate, implement, fundraise for, and evaluate a multi-faceted psycho-oncology/integrative oncology program within the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care. The Bronx Oncology Living Daily (BOLD) Program provides FREE counseling, wellness workshops and peer support to underserved adult cancer patients and their families in English and Spanish. Workshops feature mind-body, creative arts, smoking cessation, and exercise/nutrition activities. Peer support is offered through ~15 cancer survivor volunteers called “BOLD Buddies” who act as peer navigators, and ~6 teenage/young adult children of cancer patients called “BOLD Brothers/Sister Peer Mentors”. Four mental health counseling interns provide counseling under Director’s supervision. Student interns (3-6) provide volunteer assistance in program implementation and evaluation. BOLD Consultants (4-6) assist with day-to-day patient outreach, screening, case management, advertising, data tracking, and cultural compliance. Program is supported, in part by internal funds, and in part by grants from foundations, philanthropy, and other external sources. Evaluation and research activities relevant to BOLD Program impact on patient quality of life, treatment adherence, and other measures of psychosocial oncology outcomes, are central to the mission of the program.
