Hiring FAQs

I am interested in working on this project.  Where do I go to find out more? - To find available positions, visit http://www.bjc.org/Jobs or jobs.wustl.edu.   

How do I know which posted positions are associated with the clinical core project? - The clinical core positions are identified with "Epic" in the position title.  These align with the job opening IDs noted in the recruitment communications materials.  For further clarification please email your recruiter.

I am interested in multiple positions on the Clinical Core team.  Should I apply for multiple positions? - No, you should apply for only one position.  During the application process, you will have the opportunity to express interest in additional open positions. You, the hiring manager, and HR will determine the best fit.

I am interested in working with a specific application/module currently in scope as an Area of Interest (AOI).  Should I apply now or wait until all AOI decisions have been made? - Yes, you should apply now.  Openings will be added to the current postings as AOI decisions are made.  

I applied for a position on the Core Clinical team via the BJC IS Phase 1 recruitment process, but did not get selected.  Am I still eligible for future opportunities on the Core Clinical team? - Yes.  Phase 1 was an accelerated recruitment process to identify a small number of individuals to begin supporting pre-implementation activities. You will need to follow the recruitment process for your organization to be considered for a position on the team.

Can I continue to work at my current position and still be part of the Epic team? - All staff roles within the Health Information Partner (HIP) team require transitioning full time onto the team.  Employees selected for positions will be trained and certified (as needed) in order to support build and implementation of Epic.  The team will be based out of the BJC Learning Institute (BLI), 8300 Eager Road, or nearby facility.  As with any internal employee transfer, an appropriate transition period will occur for each transferred employee.

Will I have a job with BJC Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) once the Epic implementation is completed? - BJC and Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) will be recruiting for full-time positions which include Epic training, installation and ongoing optimization/ system support. While no organization can guarantee a position will last forever, these jobs have been created with the expectation employment will continue beyond the three-year implementation.

I am currently a BJC employee. Will my employer be BJC or  Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) if I am hired as part of the Epic team? - Employees selected as part of  team will work full time on the team, but will remain employees of their respective company (BJC or Washington University School of Medicine)

Will Epic certification be a requirement, and if so, what does that entail? - All IT application roles require certification in their designated application area.  This includes IS Project Managers, IS Clinical Project Managers, IS Analysts, IS Clinical Coordinators, Education Specialists and IS Technical Specialists.  Individuals who complete Epic’s certification program will be ready and able to succeed in the installation and maintenance of Epic software.  Certification involves 2-4 weeks of training at Epic’s Verona, WI campus, the completion of assigned projects and passing the certification exam.

Who will cover the Epic certification costs? - BJC and Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) will cover all training expenses including airfare and hotel.  Specific details will be communicated at the time of preparing for training registration.

How much travel is involved? - Most Epic team members must travel to Verona, WI (Epic headquarters) off and on over six consecutive weeks to undergo mandatory Epic training leading to certification. There are multiple sessions within the training program and not everyone will have to attend all the sessions. The number of sessions, duration of each session and dates for each session are currently being determined.  On average, an employee being trained will have two to three training trips for a duration of two to three days per trip. There may be other needs for travel to the Epic headquarters over the course of the implementation project.

What if I do not pass the Epic certification exam? - Employees unsuccessful in becoming certified will be handled individually to determine next steps.

How many times can I take the Epic certification exam? - The Epic certification exam can be taken three times.

How often is Epic recertification required? - Epic recertification is required when a new version of software is released. When a new version is released, BJC and Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) will conduct its training/testing from a BJC/WUSM location.
