In-House Clinical Research Associate (Current Employee), FrimleyJuly 7, 2014
Typical day for study set up would be to review priorities, contact sites for follow up on essential documents. Revieww and discuss Costings with R&D and Pharmacy in order to get it approved ahead of the scheduled SIV.
Management is supportive and helpful when you have a difficult issue with either site or contract negotiations.
Co-workers are friendly – more... and we all work as a team and help each other out with either providing information concerning a site issue or buget reviews.
The most challenging part of the job is to manage your priorities with the various sites and studies, especially when you have several SIVs happening in quick succession of each other. Sometimes you might have 2 or 3 SIVs for variuos study sites.
Positive team members who are supportive and you can also have fun with. – less
