The college has some 730 medical students, 193 Ph.D. students, 106 MD/Ph.D. students and 275 postdoctoral fellows.

    A team of researchers in the Department of Family and Social Medicine are in search for a self-motivated, highly-organized person to work under the supervision of the Program Manager on the following studies: Acupuncture Approaches to Decrease Disparities in Outcomes of Pain Treatment – A Two Arm Comparative Effectiveness Trial  (AADDOPT-2) and Patient Empowered Strategy to Reduce Asthma Morbidity in Highly Impacted Populations (PREPARE).  Both studies are comparative effectiveness trials, conducted in primary care settings throughout the Bronx, NY; the AADDOPT-2 Study  will compare the effectiveness of acupuncture for chronic pain delivered in a group setting vs individual acupuncture and the PREPARE study will compare the effectiveness of enhanced usual care vs the use of ICS on a symptom-triggered approached (called Patient-Activated Reliever-Triggered ICS (PARTICS)).  The projects will run sequentially with only a slight overlap in roles during the transition period.  The Research Associate is responsible for participant recruitment, consenting, and data collection of all study activities and procedures in both studies.
