Clinical Research Assistant Program, Department of Geriatric Psychiatry, McLean Hospital, Belmont, MA

12:15 pm

Boger Hall Boger Hall Room 112

Come join Liana Mathias 17 and Praise Owoyemi 18 to learn about the Geriatric Psychiatry Research Program, directed by Dr. Brent Forester, which addresses cutting edge research questions in the areas of dementia and mood disorders using new neuroimaging techniques, clinical-pathological correlations, and other study methods. Current studies include a number of Sponsor-led Alzheimer's disease clinical drug trials, longitudinal analyses of older adults with depression and bipolar disorder, and neuroimaging studies focused on oxidative stress in geriatric depression. The Division of Geriatric Psychiatry also includes a cutting edge program studying digital technologies and their potential for enhanced diagnostics and personalized care. This program is the only one of its kind, and it interfaces with the Institute for Technology and Psychiatry at McLean Hospital. The Clinical Research Assistant positions that will be available for application are geared towards individuals who are interested in gaining both clinical and research experience, and are preferably interested in pursuing a career in the health professions. Clinical research assistants are largely responsible for maintaining the departments studies, including reviewing protocols and conducting visits with patients in the studies. As such, research assistants will be trained in and be able to perform many clinical tests, such as ECG, phlebotomy, and administration of neurocognitive tests. They are also expected to maintain patient information and collect data for studies.

Health Care Volunteer Opportunities Abroad with FIBUSPAM

12:00 pm

Boger Hall Boger Hall Room 112

If you are interested in dentistry, medicine, ophthalmology and eye care, nursing, public health, womens health, or global health you will appreciate this presentation on FIBUSPAM, a not for profit organization. FIBUSPAM has created and sustains a medical clinic in Riobamba, Ecuador high in the Andes mountains, a six-hour drive from either Quito or Guayaquil. The mission of FIBUSPAM is to serve the poor indigenous population that mostly survives on subsistence farming, bead making, and weaving to support their families. Poverty is widespread and access to medical care is almost non-existent. The clinic, initially founded to serve the children of Riobamba, has grown to provide dental services, ophthalmological services, general medical services, women's health services, counseling, and a full time pharmacy. Other services provided by teams of American surgeons include Cleft Palate repair and general surgery. The clinic is funded through donations and grants. As such volunteers are always welcomed and encouraged to assist in medical management and in the delivery of health/wellness related education programs for the population.
