Interesting and informative breast/ovarian cancer research.
OUTREACH RESEARCH COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 28, 2018
This was a dynamic position which required patient outreach, education, and enrollment in very important breast and ovarian cancer research protocols and clinical trials. It was very fulfilling to meet and educate these patients at high risk for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations.
Unfortunately, the management was very poor, as the supervising physician was only concerned with the negative, and not the positive aspects of the employee's workload. This was the hardest part of the job, since accomplishments were obvious, but not recognized unless the praise directly reflected on the supervising physician.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting my precious patients and educating them, along with traveling within the city and out-of-state to meet with, educate, and enroll patient family members in research.
Meeting and educating patients, travel, and not having to be at a desk all day.
Supervising physician did not have good managerial skills.
