What to Expect

Curriculum

Clinical Research Fastrack’s curriculum 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.

Clinical Internship

After completing the classroom training, our students are placed in internships where they work in clinical research organizations to help run active trials. During these two weeks, students get hands-on experience supporting teams at research sites. They have the opportunity to be involved in every step of the trial process, as well as the chance to perform several “mock trials” in order to cover all aspects of the curriculum.

Career Support

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 assist our graduates in finding meaningful employment in the field.
