We seek a highly motivated and collaborative Project Manager to join an implementation science research team focused on improving care quality and health outcomes for hospitalized children.
The Project Manager will provide project management, analytical, and administrative support for a series of projects. These projects will focus on the development and testing of an intervention to improve evidence-based care/care quality for children hospitalized with respiratory illnesses in community hospitals. This study is a national, multi-hospital implementation/quality improvement research study. In the first year, up to 50 potential hospital sites/site leaders from community hospitals will be recruited, they will participate in data collection via chart review to understand baseline quality performance, and they will participate in a qualitative study to refine the QI intervention. In years 2-4, we will conduct a randomized controlled trial of a quality improvement intervention.
The Project Manager will work on a small team that collaborates closely with UCSF Health leaders, external researchers, and clinical and administrative stakeholders at hospital across the US. The Project Manager will be encouraged to take advantage of training and learning opportunities within the UCSF Training in Clinical Research Program, the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, the UCSF Center for Healthcare Value, and other related entities.
This position has significant advantages and growth opportunities in research, project management, implementation science, hospital administration/management, an/or quality improvement. First, through their work, the Project Manager will gain tremendous insight into the research, clinical, administrative, and educational functions of a large academic medical center and hospitals. A motivated Project Manager can use this knowledge to become a more integral member of research projects and to even start providing guidance to them. Second, our faculty publishes its work in peer-reviewed journals and would provide the Project Manager with authorship on publications, should they meet standard contribution criteria. Finally, the work of the Project Manager directly contributes to improving clinical care for children in hospitals across the US.
