Clinical Trials Specialist / Research Coordinator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Clinical Trials Specialist / Research Coordinator?

Clinical Trials Specialist / Research Coordinator in Durham:
"Clinical Trials Specialist for a NC medical school."
Pros: There is a lot of training in my main department and patient care is always put first by the research personnel. I see constant upward mobility within the career path and opportunities for new research experience. My supervisors and principal investigators have have trust in me but are also available when I have questions. I feel like I'm making a difference and the patients / research participants are thankful for my efforts. The participants are often happy to enroll in research, even if only for altruistic reasons. I meet people who have made great strides in the scientific community and there is a lot of professional support in both education and administration.
Cons: People burn out quickly if they don't set a work-life-balance from the beginning. Even so, some principal investigators still show signs of "boundary issues." The key to success and job satisfaction is to only accept a position with a great manager. A bad manager will set you up for unfair work hours and unsafe study situations. There's a lot of turnover in this field. Even if the turnover is because someone got promoted, it typically leads to disorganized communications and withheld expectations. Save all communications, even if it's not study-related source documents, because turnover create confusion and displaced blame if something is not performed correctly. It's also difficult to get a raise without changing departments or companies. Few clinical research units promote regularly at my organization. If you work in a department that mostly produces sponsor-funded research, there may never be an opportunity to coauthor a paper.
