The University of Pittsburgh, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Cardiology, Heart Institute, is currently recruiting a Clinical Research Nurse Coordinator (CRNC) to this nationally recognized research institution participating in many federally funded and industry-sponsored clinical trials. The CRNC will screen and enroll subjects for protocols in the clinical settings of the Division of Cardiology.

Most of the training happens locally or via web. This position is located at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in Lawrenceville.
