Clinical Research Coordinators


Clinical research coordinators plan, manage, and/or coordinate clinical research trials. Most work in laboratory settings in clinical research facilities. They record data, maintain case report forms and drug dispensation records, and monitor project activities to make sure they comply with government and institutional policies. They also make sure patients are well cared for throughout the clinical trials. Coordinators use computers and analytical, scientific, and medical software programs to code information and track patients. This type of work requires strong knowledge of administration and management, medicine and dentistry, mathematics, and English language.
