You’re a nurse, a patient advocate and an educator—and you excel at every one of them.

If there’s one thing your years of clinical training and patient education have taught you, it’s how to manage priorities, and move seamlessly from one challenge to the next. You get people to listen to your wise advice, and to overcome their fears of new and existing medical therapies by instilling confidence and sharing expertise while displaying passion. It’s time to turn those diverse talents to an exciting new field, and become an integral part of the Clinical Education team with Syneos Health.

  • Help ensure patients receive important information about their disease and be in a position to have meaningful discussions with their healthcare providers
  • Deliver helpful educational information pertaining to the disease states to patients and advocacy groups at various sponsored events

Interviews may be conducted in person at an on-site interview location. For any in person interviews, local Covid safety guidelines will be followed. 

I understand that if I am made an offer of employment, it will be conditioned on my demonstration that I am fully vaccinated OR I plan to initiate vaccination by my start date AND be fully vaccinated within 4 weeks of start date against the COVID-19 virus.   

IMPORTANT: I understand that if the role for which I am applying requires extensive in-person contact with health care providers and other medical professionals who have stringent vaccination requirements that all Syneos Health employees with whom they partner be fully vaccinated and will not accept or consider any exemptions.  I understand I can request an exemption from Syneos Health’s vaccination requirement based on a qualifying medical condition or sincerely-held religious belief. However, in the event that I successfully obtain an exemption, I understand that it is highly unlikely that I will be able to adequately perform the essential functions of this position without imposing an undue hardship on Syneos Health due to the clients’ demands.
