What is a CRA and how do I become one?

A Clinical Research Associate (CRA), sometimes called a monitor, is responsible for overseeing clinical trials conducted at various research sites. A CRA serves as a liaison between the study’s sponsor and the research teams working onsite where the study takes place. CRAs play a critical role in the success and integrity of a trial and must be highly-trained in good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines. Many professionals want to become CRAs and the best way to achieve this is to gain the training, qualifications, and experience required to oversee clinical trials at multiple sites.
