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.

For the Division of Community Collaboration and Implementation Science (Bruce Rapkin, PhD; Director), the Study Coordinator will manage research project activities across multiple National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) health care delivery research protocols. A description of currently funded projects and project-specific activities of the Study Coordinator are summarized below:
“National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP)” [Rapkin, PI]. Montefiore and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have established a minority-based NCORP community site. Under the leadership of Dr. Rapkin, the NCORP site has established a center for Cancer Care and Delivery Research (CCDR). Similar to other NCI cooperative research group activities, our NCORP CCDR program includes large-scale studies and preparatory work conducted by local investigators, incorporation of national protocols in the NCORP network, and coordination of efforts with NCI and seven research bases. NCORP CCDR activities cover every aspect of oncology and public health, from community-based prevention to establishing precision medicine protocols to optimizing management of patients with late-stage disease. The Study Coordinator will work closely with investigators involved in these different aspects of cancer from the Montefiore clinical research program.
