This question comes up so many times: "How do I get a CRA job without any experience?"
The answer is simple: You do not.
Someone who has no experience with human clinical trials has NO place being a clinical research associate. If the work experience isn't there, the person is simply not qualified for the job. In order to get a CRA job, your first step is to get a job as an intern in research, a Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC), a data manager, a project assistant or clinical trial assistant (CTA). All the degrees and all the training programs will not qualify someone to work in the USA as a clinical research associate- education walks and experience talks.
