Volunteer research assistant needed

Volunteer research assistant needed: I am currently seeking an energetic and enthusiastic volunteer research assistant to help with phone calls, data entry, and administrative tasks in the Bariatric Surgery Program at the Toronto Western Hospital. The Bariatric Surgery Program is a dynamic department consisting of a team of health professionals from a variety of disciplines including psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, social workers, surgeons and dietitians. The team conducts pre-surgical assessments of patients considering bariatric surgery and post-surgical follow-up for five years after surgery. The eligible candidate will be a responsible, conscientious and quick-learning individual with excellent communication skills who has experience with Excel. I require someone who is available one day per week, either Mondays or Thursdays and is able to begin immediately. The volunteer should have completed at least their first year of undergraduate studies in psychology. While this position does not involve face-to-face patient contact, there are opportunities to observe patient groups and to attend clinic research meetings. This position would be ideal for someone who is interested in health psychology, eating behaviours and obesity, and clinical psychology.

If interested, please send a resume/CV to Samantha Leung, research coordinator for the Toronto Western Hospital Bariatric Surgery Program, to samantha.leung@uhn.ca.
