I have been working as a clinical research coordinator for the past 3 years. My field is focused on Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which is an autoimmune disease affecting the digestive system. Through working as a part of the multidisciplinary team, I realized that there are gaps that need to be bridged to improve patient care. I decided to attend this program to become a better member of the circle of care.
