Becoming a clinical study coordinator can be a rewarding career path for a number of reasons. Here are a few potential reasons why you may want to consider this profession:

  • Contributing to the advancement of medical research: As a clinical study coordinator, you would be involved in the planning, coordination, and execution of clinical trials and other medical research studies. This can be an opportunity to contribute to the development of new treatments and therapies that could improve the lives of patients.
  • Working in a dynamic and challenging field: Clinical research is a constantly evolving field, and as a study coordinator, you would be at the forefront of this work. You would be responsible for ensuring that studies are conducted in compliance with regulatory requirements and ethical standards, and you would need to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the field.
  • Building a diverse skillset: As a study coordinator, you would gain a variety of skills that could be valuable in other areas of healthcare or research. These could include project management, data analysis, communication, and problem-solving.
  • Making a difference for patients: Ultimately, the work of a clinical study coordinator is about improving patient care. By helping to facilitate studies that could lead to new treatments or better understanding of disease, you could have a significant impact on the lives of patients and their families.
  • Strong compensation: The salary of a clinical study coordinator can vary depending on a number of factors, including location, years of experience, and the specific industry or organization in which they work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual wage for clinical research coordinators in the United States was $51,510 as of May 2020. However, salaries can range from around $32,000 to over $83,000 per year. It’s worth noting that salaries may also be higher for study coordinators with advanced degrees or specialized expertise in certain areas of research.

 

Of course, becoming a study coordinator also requires hard work, attention to detail, and a commitment to accuracy and compliance. But if you are passionate about medical research and helping others, it could be a rewarding and fulfilling career choice.

 

The responsibilities of a clinical study coordinator can vary depending on the specific study or trial they are working on, as well as the organization or institution they are employed by. However, some typical responsibilities of a clinical study coordinator may include:

  • Planning and coordinating the study: Clinical study coordinators are responsible for helping to design and plan the study, including determining the research question, identifying study participants, and deciding on study protocols and procedures.
  • Obtaining informed consent: Study coordinators must ensure that study participants understand the risks and benefits of participation and that they have given their informed consent to be part of the study.
  • Managing study documents: Study coordinators maintain all necessary documentation for the study, including regulatory submissions, study protocols, and participant consent forms.
  • Collecting and analyzing data: Clinical study coordinators are responsible for collecting data from participants and ensuring that it is recorded accurately and securely. They may also be responsible for analyzing the data and reporting on the findings.
  • Ensuring compliance with regulations and ethical standards: Study coordinators must ensure that the study is conducted in compliance with all applicable regulations and ethical standards, including those related to patient privacy and confidentiality.
  • Communicating with study participants and other stakeholders: Clinical study coordinators may communicate with study participants to answer questions and provide updates, as well as with other stakeholders such as study sponsors, principal investigators, and regulatory agencies.
  • Managing study finances: Study coordinators may be responsible for managing study finances, including tracking expenses and ensuring that the study stays within budget.
 

Overall, the role of a clinical study coordinator is critical to the success of any medical research study or clinical trial. By ensuring that the study is conducted ethically and according to regulatory requirements, and that data is collected accurately and securely, study coordinators help to advance our understanding of disease and improve patient care.

There are several reasons why you might consider getting a CRA certification:

Demonstrated knowledge and commitment: Obtaining a CRA certification demonstrates to employers and colleagues that you have a strong understanding of clinical research processes, regulations, and best practices. It shows your commitment to your career in clinical research and can set you apart from other candidates when applying for jobs.

Increased job opportunities: Many employers prefer or require candidates with CRA certifications for their open positions. Having a certification can make you a more competitive candidate and increase your job opportunities.

Career advancement: A CRA certification can help you advance in your career by opening up opportunities for promotion, leadership roles, and increased pay.

Continuing education: Many employers require ongoing education and professional development, which can help you stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the field.

Overall, obtaining a CRA certification can help you stand out in a competitive job market, demonstrate your knowledge and commitment to your career, and open up opportunities for career advancement and professional development.

No, you can proceed with the course in your own pace. But please keep in mind, that you might have to purchase a course extension in order to continue learning (check the pricing table above).

To become a CRA, you will typically need a bachelor’s degree in a life science or healthcare-related field, such as biology, chemistry, nursing, or pharmacy. However, some employers may accept degrees in other fields if you have relevant work experience.

In addition to a degree, it is beneficial to have experience working in the healthcare or research industry. This can include positions such as a research assistant, laboratory technician, or nurse. Other skills for a CRA include attention to detail, strong organizational and communication skills, the ability to work independently and as part of a team, and problem-solving abilities. Proficiency in Microsoft Office and other relevant software is also important.

If you are not sure if this is the right training for you, we are happy to help you make the right decision. Email us at academy@viares.com and we will contact you.
