Hype or Substance.?????? Going by various reports in the Internet it would seem that The Clinical Research Revolution in India has begun. As for the IT industry it is also being said "INDIA HAS --- Well trained, English speaking and computer savvy biomedical workforce Cost effective workforce willing and able to adhere meticulously to protocols and processes Large heterogeneous “urban centric” patient populations"
At the same time there is the same old complain about "inadequate trained personnel" which simply means aspirants have to spend 2 to 4 lac Rs for a 2 year course.
What is the truth?
1) What are the actual Qualifications of personnel presently employed in clinical research i India?
2) What are the actual starting salaries in India in the CR industry
3) What are the current recruitment requirements for CRA / CTA / CDM ?
4) What are the recruitment opportunities IN PLACES OTHER THAN BANGALORE / DELHI/ HYDERABAD ???

Dr Thirumalesh R L in Koppa, India said: Hi friends,
This is Dr Thirumalesh graduated in BAMS and Diploma in Clinical research and regulatory affairs.
yah its really true india is good destination for conducting clinica research because indians are the ginnipigs for MNC biotech companies to do the trial.
Now a days insitutions are making money in the name clinical research by taking Rs 1.5-4. lakhs for this course and no one company asking the degree in clinical research.They are looking only for basic life science degree only.
i dont know why the companies are not intresting in taking ayurvedic graduates even after doining clinical research course.There should be a standard set of qualification to join a clinical research. These institutions making money by joining all lofe science graduates. And the companies are looking only for pharma,MBBS,BDS, AMD MSC IN BIOCHEMISTRY,MICRIBIOLOGY,BIOTECHNOLOGY.AND I AM TIRED OFF BY SEARCHING A job in clinical research. Please my dear friend dont join any clinical research course. Just search in google u will many notes in clinical research guidelines and just gi through it. It is more and more enough.And the once you enter into the industry again they will try the peoples ok.
Thanking you.

drthirurl@yahoo.co.in

Yes Sir,I agree with you ,But sir I am searching job in this field last one year.But no company offering job without experience.I am M.Sc. biotechnology.If any one offer me such type of job,I can work free of coast.
Thank you

hy i have complited my bams in surat o.h nazar ayurved college in 2006 and i have 1 year exp. in hospital .now i am pursuving in icri ahemdabad. i want to know about opportunity for bams in clinical research

Dr Thirumalesh R L in Bangalore, India

Hi Dr Sanjay
Don't do the clinical research course because now a days copmpanies offering very less salary i.e from RS 5000. If you potential in your finance open an ayurveidc hospital. Otherwise if there is no problem from regulatory department in your state you can go for allopatic practice.
U will earn more as compared to the clinical research.
Now a days no one company giving importance to BAMS drs i don't why because every one can do this job not only the medicos. if your institution is giving 100% job sure i can tell u to continue(but not heartly)Industry was booming 3 yrs back but not now.and no one know the future.Salary has reduced to 50% less as compared to 3 yrs back.
so i decided to do the mixopathy(ayu+allopathy) practise.
And those who are in the industry they are telling me to do your own practice.and one thing u remember that u will never become actual scientist or any thing.U will just do the monotoring of the trail only like a representative ok.it is best for ladies because familly will never dependent on them. Think twice before joining the industry as i all ready suffring very much.
Take care bye bye

DR MANIK DIXIT in Hyderabad, India

HI ALL,

I'm working as CRC for a reputed doctor at Hyderabad for the last 3 years. However inspite of my hard and sincere work I was forced to leave the job without payment by the doctor.

This has become an easy way of making fast money for some of the Principal Investigators. They are not at all concerned about the safety of the patients. While it is the Coordinator who actually handles the entire project however they are exploited and not paid properly. Also, at times fake data is created by the investigator.

I have decided to quit this feild.

I feel a hype is created about the opportunities by the institutions and they are tied up with sponsor pharma and CRO for placements these days. There is no encouragement for actual talent.

VENU in Secunderabad, India said: don't worry about these comments but all are truth,may i know what is ur education back ground,based on that i can advice u, don't get upset, if u are really that much of interesting in the field of CRO u better join CDM course,to day so many BPOs are handling bioscience projects thus u can enter in to a software field with good packages,in CROs u will get less salary in starting later on it will increases, don't think about salary first,first join in any organization,gain knowledge, parallel y try for other companies,but think before choosing a department in CRO,OK

Pratap in Hyderabad, India

Dear aspirants of clinical research!

First understand the global situation and then opt for doing Clinical trials or related courses. Most of the MNCs are taking only experienced people in the field. Best is that u start with any BPO IN LIFE SCIENCE domain for Clinical data manageemnt positions.

Which is better CRA/CDM?

CDM is universal, this having better prospects and onsite oppurtunities when comapred to CRA. CRA it is mandatory to know the regional lanuguage...if it is USA OR UK it is ok.

Hi, Juhi
cliniminds !!!
They are not giving 100% guarantee of placement.
Please read carefully their brochures in which they have clearly mentioned "Job support".
Also no institute will give you such GUARANTEE.

Chaithu,

What do you mean 'as a girl' you cannot find your way to get into clinical trials? In the States, clinical research employs many females. I would say less than 15% of coordinators are male and most CRA's are female. Apply to world-wide sponsors- there is no reason your sex should hold you back from your dreams

Find the cause why comapny not recruiting For B.A.M.S , rather than blaming company, u have to show your effecasy, and all require thing, yes i appolise that background carry some weightage, if you come with your knoweldge which require for clinical research, no body will reject you
i must say find out reasion why they are not recruiting,

After all company spending the lots of money they need well trained and knowedge person, if u have those quility definataly you people also get select,

Iam also a B.A.M.S I got job.

BE POSITIVE RATHER THAN BLEAMING TO OTHERS

If you any question get back to me on
