Personable working environment with friendly staff
Clinical Research Study Coordinator (Current Employee) – Marlton, NJ – January 19, 2015
Typical day would include talking to patients to gather information on their health post-operation and/or post-physical therapy and enter that information into a study spreadsheet to be analyzed to create a better experience and treatment for future patients.
I learned how to communicate with others of all different ages, as well as what treatments work best with some patients that may not work well with others.
Management is extremely upbeat and friendly. They always find time to let you know when you are doing well and are very easy to talk to.
My co-workers are just as friendly as management. If you are behind in your work, there is no hesitation towards helping you complete the study needed. This creates a very happy working environment.
The hardest part of this job is having to speak with patients who's treatment did not go well for them or they are unhappy. Just knowing that we couldn't help a certain patient is very disheartening and I always hope for the best with every patient we care for.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the exact opposite. I love hearing that a surgery was a huge success and we have made a positive impact on that patient's life due to our treatment. Also, every patient has a different personality and I love getting to know others.
Work alongside people, create a difference in patient treatment using study approaches, caring and personable staff
