Dr. Peter G. Passias, an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, is looking to hire a full-time, paid clinical research fellow interested in gaining research experience before applying to medical or graduate school. There is a large amount of responsibility and autonomy in the position, and over the course of your fellowship, you will build connections with both national and international leaders in orthopedic surgery. The position is a great opportunity to gain clinical and shadowing exposure, research experience, peer-reviewed publications, and to interact with world-renowned orthopedic and neurosurgeons. I’m the third Middlebury student to work with Dr. Passias, and I’ve found this position to be both incredibly rewarding and instrumental in my medical school application process. I would wholeheartedly recommend this position to a pre-med senior interested in a meaningful 2-year experience after graduating Middlebury before attending medical school.
Research assistants will be involved in multiple clinical studies (both prospective trials and retrospective reviews), on various orthopaedic subjects. Some topics include: adult spinal deformity surgical correction, cervico-thoracic junction fixation, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis treatment. Research assistants will be involved in: (1) patient recruitment, (2) data collection, (3) database preparation, (4) abstract/manuscript preparation and submission, (5) IRB documentation, among others. They will also have the opportunity to present work at an international conference.
Applicants must be well-organized and have excellent interpersonal skills. Familiarity with the following programs is preferred: SPSS, R, Excel, Word, Powerpoint.
Interested applications can send a cover letter and C.V. to Cole Bortz. You can also email Cole for more information about the position.
