The mission of Clinical Research Fastrack is to open doors for our graduates to work in positions administering clinical trials. We are industry focused and student focused. We know what the industry wants and the challenges researcher organizations face in finding qualified, trained professionals. We understand that students want to learn, gain experience and start working.

What to Expect
The curriculum of Clinical Research Fastrack is fast paced and intensive. Our students spend nine hours a day in the classroom for two weeks immersing themselves in the content that builds their educational foundation in this field.
After their classroom training our students are placed in internships where they work in a clinical research organization that is putting on a clinical trial. During this time they will be supporting the team putting on the trial. The students will be involved in all aspects of the trial process that are happening during those two weeks as well as performing some “mock trials” to cover all aspects of the curriculum.
Once the internship is over our students will have the opportunity to interview with a recruiting firm and begin applying to jobs in the clinical research field. Our graduate services department will help our students with networking, outreach to clinical research organizations and developing application strategies to help our graduates find meaningful employment in the field.
