I would like to know how one can join the CR industry without doing any course?

Many of the courses are part time and they are offering placement assistance too.

Cliniversity in Bombay, India

Hello all,

Its a long thread and I see all kinds of emotions, questions and answers here. I just want to add my two cents in here. There are institutes and courses in clinical research where the fee varies from 7000 to 5 lacs. Now, it is your choice which you have to choose. If you want a recommendation from industry whether you need a course or not, then it is a very straight "NO". Industry looks at 'Experience' rather than degrees in specific to clinical research. Most of the organizations may require graduation/post graduation in life sciences for clinical operations. The logic is very simple, ICH-GCP needs folks in clinical research with necessary qualification, training and experience. Adequate qualification is explained above, and training will be given during job and experience comes only when you work.

So,its a good decision if one can make to study as well as work as a CRC as volunteer which will enhance your scope of getting a job easily. Do your ground research well when you choose to take a course from any institute. SWOT analysis is what I mean. You can find some useful information at www.cliniversity.com

Thanks,
pnr @ cliniversity.com

Are you serious? You're depressed because you are having difficulty finding a position in the field? Am I correct? Explain exactly what is worth having that doesn't have difficulties associated with it. Yes, it is difficult to get into the industry, but where are you starting from? Also, this PG diploma. Did you even look into it before signing up to see if it was worth the cost? Did you try to speak with anyone in the industry to see if this was for you or what the outlook was? Finally, would you mind explaining why everything is useless in life? That is the MOST defeatist idea I've ever heard.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but how old are you? I'm thinking you are fairly young so saying life is useless really annoys me. Get a grip, the economy will get better and jobs will come up again. It is the same all over the world.

Hi Richa,

I dont see a point to get upset or to get depressed about. You need to identify the right approach to get a break. There are a lot of opportunities for bds graduates in cr field and also you may see a lot of recruitment happening in the first quarter, 2010. So please keep confidence in yourself and work on honing your skills.

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

hi
Actually course is not required for CR jobs. qualifications for CR jobs are lifescience or health science post graduates , good managent skills, analysis skils.

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,

Hi Robert,

That is right. In usa your sex does not held you back in any field. But unfortunately in india the CROs hire males only for CRA position most of the time. I have worked in a lab in usa and now i am in india, looking for CRA position with double masters degree in life science, but nobody wants to hire me on entry level because i am a woman. Companies dont trust women as there is lot of travelling involved in this job and they believe women can't travell due to home responsibilites.
What i can say is both the cultures are different.

Thanks,
Hiral
