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.

The Study Coordinator will be a part of a team at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and collaborate with the Principal Investigators (PIs) and Project Director (PD) in all aspects of two Hepatitis C (HCV)-related projects. The first project is a NIH funded study to develop and test a peer intervention to increase linkage HCV treatment following release from jail. The second project is a Merck funded study utilizing artificial intelligence technology (AiCure) via smartphone to improve medication adherence for patients initiating HCV treatment. Additionally, the coordinator will be involved in other projects related to HCV, people who inject drugs (PWID), and their intersection with the criminal justice system. Research related visits will include qualitative interviews, computerized interviews, online surveys, adherence counts, medical chart extraction, and extracting data from online sources. The Study Coordinator may also be involved in additional pilot projects.
