The Memento Team at WashU School of Medicine is looking for undergraduate students interested in medicine and technology to help with an upcoming clinical study on a project to build a mobile application that helps physicians better diagnose Alzheimer's disease.
The Memento Team wants you to help trial a clinical study about Alzheimer's disease, one of the most prevalent diseases in the elderly. To help combat the amount of time physicians spend trying to diagnose patients which has created an enormous backlog of patients, the Memento Team has built a mobile application that we believe can help physicians diagnose Alzheimer's disease more quickly.
As part of this fascinating project, we're looking for students interested in medicine and technology to help with a clinical study asking whether a mobile application administered prior to a patient's visit with a physician can accurately assess a patient's risk for Alzheimer's disease. We do not require any past clinical experience, but do expect enthusiasm, proactivity, and genuine interest in pushing medicine forward.
The time commitment would be at minimum, a full morning (8 a.m.-12 p.m.) or afternoon (1-5 p.m.), once or more a week. Researchers will have many opportunities for patient interaction, shadowing, and hands-on clinical research.
