Much of this data is determined through the clinical trials and resulting research, and includes information for medical pamphlets associated with the product. Though the duties of the job are mostly administrative, in some smaller projects the associate director may also help evaluate patients as research is carried out. As assistants, they generally work under senior directors, so duties may be assigned as necessary.
