Careers in Clinical Research: Charting a Path for CRO Professionals

A career in clinical research as a CRO professional has many advantages – plentiful demand, good compensation, and the ability to make a positive impact – but investigating and exploring these career opportunities can be difficult for those unfamiliar with contract research organizations. In this presentation, we’ll look at a number of different career path options available at CROs, identify how to get started on these paths, and discuss the skills and knowledge you’ll need to progress along those paths. The presentation will include real world examples including those who start their professional careers at a CRO, those who transition from other jobs and industries, some common career paths, and some not so common ones.
