Clinical Research Associates

A Clinical Research Associate (CRA) is responsible for monitoring trials at various clinical study sites to assure adherence to Good Clinical Practices, SOPs and study protocols. Additionally, the CRA also reviews regulatory documents and prepares site visit reports. A CRA may also participate in clinical training programs and stay abreast of developments in the field of clinical research as needed. Because a CRA is typically responsible for simultaneous multiple projects, he/she must work well both independently and in a team environment.

 

In this line of work, much time is spent visiting clinicians performing trials to ensure that all testing is executed correctly, that procedures are properly followed and that patients are not being compromised. A CRA also ensures the data collected are accurate. A CRA may be employed by a pharmaceutical company or a Contract Research Organization (CRO). The nature of the work usually requires a BS or RN degree, as CRAs often work in close collaboration with various medical professionals.

 

Employment Outlook

Career opportunities for Clinical Research Associates typically exist in hospitals, physicians’ offices, contract research organizations, biomedical research organizations and institutions, specialty disease centers and pharmaceutical and medical device suppliers. With the growth of the Biotechnology industry, CRA positions are expected to increase 20% or more in the next 10 years. Clinical Research Associates earn an average of $17.00 to $30.00 an hour for an annual salary of $36,000 to $63,000 a year or higher, depending on educational degrees obtained, the research setting, credentials and experience.
