Clinical trainers work in an indoor clinical setting and may spend many hours per day standing or moving, so applicants should be capable of spending a typical eight-hour shift on their feet. Strong verbal and written communication skills are important in this position, as these trainers not only create and edit written training material, but also interface with existing personal at all levels to ascertain their training. They must also be familiar with all positions in the clinic to provide thorough and relevant training for all new employees. As such, strong memory skills, close attention to detail, and high adaptability are all beneficial for the position.
Clinical trainers are typically part of a small team of three to four people who report directly to a head of human resources (HR) and ultimately report to all levels of management based on the current material, as training material is needed for all positions including those in human resources.
