The Vocal Cord Paralysis Experience Study (CoPE)

The purpose of this study is to better understand how one-sided (unilateral) vocal cord paralysis affects the lives of patients across the country. Participants are asked to complete 4 or 5 surveys at specific intervals over a 6-month period. The CoPE Collaborative consists of 48 academic medical centers located across the United States. To join the study, participants must be referred by a participating CoPE provider. Participants also need to have been diagnosed with one-sided vocal cord paralysis, have access to the internet, have an email address, be at least 18 years old, and speak English. If you are interested in the study, please request a brochure from your provider or contact the research study staff. For more information, visit copestudy.org.

UW Survey Center’s “High Impact Teaching Practices” Mentor UW Undergraduates

UWSC regularly employs 50 to 100 undergraduates who are trained as phone interviewers, data entry operators, and mail room workers.  UWSC’s preference for promoting from within means that these students have opportunities to apply for regular staff and supervisory positions within UWSC’s field operations, survey management, and technology departments.  Students in all these positions develop a range of skills that will help them when they enter the job market.
