Research Volunteer Program
The Methodist Health System Clinical Research Institute Research Volunteer Program allows candidates to gain research experience while working intimately with knowledgeable faculty, clinicians, and study teams at the Methodist Richardson Medical Center.
Volunteers are expected to be an integral part of the Hepatopancreaticobiliary Surgery research team. The unique patient population at the Methodist Richardson Medical Center forms the basis for numerous and diverse investigations. Research volunteers will have an opportunity to participate with multiple projects, including chart reviews and randomized controlled studies. Participants will help to publish manuscripts under the direction of experienced research faculty and may be given an opportunity to coauthor or present work at local, national, and international meetings. Volunteers will attend educational programs, meetings, and observe clinical activities.
