We will consider local candidates, candidates willing to relocate, and will also consider 100% remote (if you reside outside of the immediate Southern California region).
As a Patient Records Abstractor IV for UCLA Health Sciences, you will abstract clinical and pathological information according to California Cancer Registry (CCR), Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End-Results (SEER), and California Cancer Surveillance Program (CSP) of L.A. County guidelines and assign ICD-0 codes into the UCLA Cancer Registry database. You will be responsible for assigning the appropriate accession/sequence number to reach reportable case, the appropriate TNM stage to all analytic cases and Extent of Disease (EOD), and the appropriate SEER Summary stage of disease for all analytic cases. Your established experience in these areas means you can abstract information with a less than 3% error rate as required by the CCR.
In terms of case finding, you will review Dermatology, Pathology, Diagnostic Indexes, autopsy reports, Death Certificates, Bone Marrow and other source documents to determine reportability of cases. You will enter reportable identified cases into the Cancer Registry suspension file for abstracting, and you will be a resource on abstracting and reportability of cases for other Cancer Data Center staff.
Your career path at UCLA Health will enable you to follow a myriad of avenues and turns. It opens up a wide variety of opportunities.
There’s a togetherness and higher level of commitment to teamwork at UCLA Health. We are several groups and teams that work together with a common goal which is to improve our patients experience.
UCLA Health walks the walk and talks the talk! It's an incredible feeling to work for an organization that always puts the patient first. I am honored to work in full alignment with the UCLA Health Mission and Vision.
