  • An exclusive 15% discount on the cost of an exhibit booth at the ACRP annual conference.


Why the PWA is Important…

“In clinical research, people are everything.” This is what we believe.

Without an adequate pipeline of qualified, competent professionals, our community will fail both to sustain the workforce and to improve the efficiency and quality of medical discovery.

High turnover. Quality and performance variance. Growing demand for more skilled, competent professionals. Our industry struggles with many issues, at the root of which is a lack of awareness of clinical research as a career option in the healthcare and life sciences communities.

Organizations employing clinical research professionals of all types agree – the first step in creating a diverse and sustainable talent pool is to ensure that healthcare and life sciences students are aware of clinical research as a career option.

In response to this critical challenge, ACRP is bringing together this coalition of stakeholders with a vested interest in growing the clinical research workforce.
