Careers at Avanza
Clinical Research Coordinator:
Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs) work in a team environment under the direction of Principle Investigators. Although the Principle Investigator is responsible for the management of the clinical trial, the CRC handles the bulk of the daily clinical trial activities and is very critical to the success of the trial. The responsibilities of a CRC include organizing a research study site; evaluating new study protocols, recruiting, screening and enrolling clinical study participants; arranging follow-up visits; maintaining and dispensing investigational therapies and other study supplies; completing and ensuring the accuracy of case report forms and regulatory documents; and ensuring the adherence to Good Clinical Practice guidelines and industry regulations.
Although not required, many CRCs may be trained as nurses, or any number of medical professionals. There are an increasing number of formal programs available for careers as a CRC at universities and colleges. Certification programs such as the Association for Clinical Research Professional (ACRP) www.acrpnet.org and the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA) www.socra.org have been well established for years.
CRCs must possess many skills that range from patient care, critical thinking, interpersonal, organizational and administrative, marketing, and time management. Attention to detail with the ability to be flexible is very important. CRCs are very busy.
Clinical Research Technologist:
Responsible for setting up, monitoring and completing clinical trials, the Clinical Research Technologist (CRT) is an integral part of the research process. The CRT must be meticulous. Errors in clerical work, data collecting, data analysis, reporting or compiling data can ruin the outcome of a study. The CRT role is an ideal way to introduce yourself to the clinical research career field.
The regulatory compliance associate uses regulatory, legal and accounting skills to ensure all employees and trials adhere to laws and regulations, as well as common industry practices. The Regulatory Coordinator keeps the team abreast of new and changing regulations, ensuring all clinical trials are conducted within specified guidelines.
