About PCRM

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a nonprofit organization working toward compassionate and effective medical practice, research, and health promotion. Since 1985, PCRM has led the way for reforms of federal nutrition policies, and our clinical research programs are breaking new ground in diabetes, cancer, and other serious medical conditions. We have fought for an emphasis on prevention, higher ethical standards in research, and scientific advances in basic research and effective drug development. Over the years, we have taken on battles to end ethically questionable experiments involving children and inhumane animal experiments and have worked to improve science education. We have worked with physicians, federal regulators, politicians, researchers, educators, students, and concerned citizens. And we have so much more work to do.

About This Career Opportunity

The Special Events Manager is responsible for planning and executing PCRM’s special events, which help PCRM raise funds, gain publicity, increase awareness of PCRM and our mission,  and build relationships with celebrities and PCRM donors and supporters. He or she will be responsible for liaising with consultants, vendors, other development department staff as well as our program, accounting, communications, and publications departments; creating budgets; maintaining a financial overview for fundraising events; developing relationships with celebrities, VIPs, and members; and managing all aspects of our special events, from strategic planning to post-event follow up.


We are seeking a health-oriented, compassionate, team player who is committed to achieving results. PCRM’s team members take on bold and ambitious initiatives and tackle their work with a sense of urgency. If you share these qualities, are passionate about PCRM’s mission to advance the field of preventive medicine, plant-based nutrition and ethical research, have excellent organizational, time management, and networking skills, and have a background in event organizing, we’d like to hear from you.
