Any previous experience working with study subjects, chart reviews, and other research tasks is also useful.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Student will be responsible for assisting with qualitative data collection (focus groups, in-depth interviews), transcribing audio files, recruiting subjects for study participation, and other research-related tasks. It is possible that some work may be done outside of traditional office hours, so some flexibility in their availability is helpful.
