Clinical Research Fastrack

Francisco R.

This is going to be a lengthy review. I promise, it is worth the read.
So here I am writing this from an investigators meeting in Chicago, Illinois. I have only been a study coordinator for about 4 weeks, and I am ecstatic about the opportunities I have had. This is actually the 2nd investigators meeting I have been to. I cannot praise the CRFastrack program enough for what it has provided for me. Among the most valuable things I have received (aside from the vast education and externship experience) are the connections I was able to make from the get go. Because of these connections, I was able to secure the job I have now. Because of the training I received, I have been confident in doing my work and have been put as a lead coordinator on the current trial I am working with. In addition, I am slated as the lead coordinator for an additional trial which we have just started. From the moment I began my position, I knew what to look for, what charts and binders to review, and what systems I needed access to in order to perform my job effectively. ALL THANKS to Clinical Research Fastrack. I have heard stories (even at the meeting I am at) where people who were research assistants for years, still did not have the right knowledge nor did they feel comfortable transitioning into the CRC position they took. I am way ahead of these people. CRFastrack puts you in connection with professionals from the field, many professionals. How much would you be willing to pay a professional researcher for 4 hours of their time to teach you what they know? How about 10 professionals? What is it worth to you? CRFastrack has put it all together for you. They also help you learn how to network with the right people outside of the program. I have had tremendous success in the small amount of time I have been a CRC and I owe a large part of that to my experiences with CRFastrack. Lastly, the most important part of my whole experience are the individuals there that work hard to help you in your growth. One person particular stands out for me, and I am eternally grateful for her. She never gave up on me even though there were times I wanted to give up on myself. You know who you are! Thank you so much!
