Good health care is key to a good life. At Banner Health, we understand that, and that’s why we work hard every day to make a difference in people’s lives. Do you like the idea of making a positive change in people’s lives - and your own? If so, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.


The management team is very supportive and wants to see the growth of their team. This applicant will spend most of the day talking to patients about the research study and enrolling those that are interested into the research study. Each morning, the Clinical Research Assistant (CRA) will review a Cerner list of patients in the hospital to identify those that are appropriate (not too sick) to approach. The CRA will talk to the patient’s nurse to confirm that the patient is stable to talk with. The CRA then enters each patient room to talk to them about All of Us (they give an elevator pitch). If the patient says yes, then the CRA completes the enrollment process. Enrollment is helping a patient create an account and consent on an iPad, complete physical measurements, draw blood (we will teach the applicant phlebotomy), and process the specimen. Usually an CRA has to approach about 10 patients to get one person to say yes. Other responsibilities include data quality control, outreach events, and retention of enrolled participants.


A majority of the work will be onsite/in-person. At home work only occurs when the research program is closed for enrollments. Also, there are two enrollment locations (McKee and NCMC) plus some community outreach. Ability to travel locally is required. Mileage will be reimbursed for travel outside of the “home” location. This position is based out of North Colorado Medical Center. Typical schedule is M-F; 8:30am to 4:30pm. There is some flexibility if needed; an 8 hour shift between 7:30am to 6:30pm can be accommodated. Training will need to occur between 8:30am to 4:30pm.

***PLEASE NOTE: some travel between Greeley, Loveland, and Fort Collins maybe be required.
