POSITION SUMMARY
The Division of Hematology, Blood Cancer and BMT Program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus has an opening for a full time Clinical Research Coordinator.

PROFESSIONAL FIELD
Clinical Research
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The faculty of the Division of Hematology are responsible for teaching, clinical care and research in all aspects of Hematologic Disorders. Our division has physicians and advanced practice providers who are devoted primarily to clinical care and clinical research, physician scientists who divide their time between the lab and the clinic and scientists who spend their time focused primarily on laboratory research. Because we take such an integrated approach to the diagnosis, treatment and curing of blood disorders we are able to move treatments from the bench to the bedside in a significantly more timely fashion.
Our patients have access to clinical teams assembled specifically for each type of cancer - and all of these specialists are seen at one location, in one visit. Our medical teams meet regularly and work together to evaluate all cases, plan and deliver treatment, manage side effects and provide support for the entire treatment arc, including helping our patients stay healthy and tackle physical and emotional challenges after treatment.
The Division of Hematology also has the responsibility to promote clinical trials research efforts across the spectrum of hematology, and is committed to investigations involving non-malignant hematological disorders, as well as across all age spectrums, including pediatric hematology.
