Program Description: This session will discuss how clinical research is an industry in transition that is in need of clearly defined roles and career paths to produce skilled, experienced, and educated professionals with the expertise to manage and oversee the conduct of clinical trials. First, there is a need to establish a stronger presence in the university setting by educating and creating awareness amongst collegiate level students about the opportunities within the clinical research industry. Next, effective training programs are vital to high standards for novice clinical researchers. In addition, the clinical research industry has a major need for better indicators of competencies that can determine of expertise, rather than the long-standing notion of equivocating tenure to expertise. Lastly, creating clearly defined career paths encourages the pursuit of additional skills and continuing professional development. These initiatives establish a strong foundation for individual and organizational success.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the importance of clinical research industry exposure at the collegiate level.
  2. Recognize the need for appropriate training and certification for professionals working in the clinical research industry.
  3. Assess the value of a defined career path that develops individuals and leads to qualified and dedicated research professionals.
