The American Association for Medical Colleges (AAMC) Center for Health Justice is hiring a Director of Research!
Dr. Philip Alberti, Founding Director of the AAMC Center for Health Justice, shares that the person hired for this role will be a key member of the center’s strategy team, work in a deeply collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, must have health equity and population health passion and experience, and must have survey development and some quantitative skills. Health Impact Assessment and policy analysis experience is a big plus.
Dr. Alberti co-authored a paper with our former CCHE director Dr. Alexandra Adams and others in 2017 that looked at the context of research impact. “Assessing and Communicating the Value of Biomedical Research: Results From a Pilot Study” is published in Academic Medicine and demonstrates the value of research from a variety of perspectives – from academic to community. It illustrates how metrics beyond grant income and publications can capture the outputs of an academic health center in a way that may better align with the aims of the center and stakeholders.
We thank Dr. Alberti for sharing this big opportunity. Please pass along to your networks!
