Ashley Xiong is a Certified Clinical Research Coordinator (CCRC) with the Spine Division of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. She has more than 10 years of experience working in healthcare and has been at Mayo Clinic since May of 2018.
As a CCRC, she helps patients find suitable alternative options for treatment of spinal conditions, conducts clinical trials, and helps medical students, residents, and fellows get going in research. Her favorite part of each day is talking to the patients, developing new studies, and helping others start their own research.
