The Division of Endocrinology in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University is seeking a Clinical Research Coordinator Associate to join the Project ECHO Diabetes teams to serve as the Project ECHO Diabetes Clinic Coordinator. Stanford University has partnered with Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) to develop a Project ECHO® clinic for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), Project ECHO T1D, for the State of California. The goal is to increase the capacity of primary care providers and clinics to empower and safely and effectively manage underserved patients with T1D who do not receive routine specialty care. Project ECHO® is an innovative “Hub-and-spoke” outreach model committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations by equipping community practitioners with the right knowledge, at the right place, at the right time. Given the success of the pilot program, the Stanford research team is now preparing to evaluate patient-level outcomes and value considerations for payers, clinics, and providers prior to preparing for broader implementation of the ECHO Diabetes. 

The ideal candidate is a passionate person with significant experience working with or living with T1D who is interested in systems change and addressing health disparities in diabetes. This is a full-time position that will require travel and relationship building with clinic sites throughout the State of California. Our Department values team collaboration and seeks a candidate who is passionate about furthering research in population health and health disparities.
