CCTAM will become a comprehensive database for all Canadian clinical research assets; the essential tool for anyone planning on conducting clinical research in Canada. It hopes to position Canada as an attractive destination for the conduct of clinical trials in the global marketplace.
This presentation includes a LIVE DEMO of the database. It is very exciting to see how it is all coming together – what a fabulous tool this will be for clinical researchers in Canada!!

Career change is an important step and needs to be well informed. Finding a job in a new field, where nobody knows you and you know nobody, is also a challenge.
The Clinical Research Career Day is an informal event in downtown Montreal (Hôtel Gouverneur, Place Dupuis, Berry-UQAM Metro Station) organized monthly after the work hours ( from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm) by ‘Access Clincal Research Group/CRA-School of Montreal’.
It is a meeting with seasoned clinical research professionals from 3-4 companies who will speak about their jobs and career paths to people, interested to switch to clinical research and answer their questions. In addition it is a great networkin opportunity.
The participants vary from current students in our CRP training program or the similar university programs of UdeM & McGill, to MSc, PhD and Post-doc or foreign life science professionals in career reorientation.
The CRCD gives them an opportunity to ask freely all their questions and get unbiased and objective answers directly from the source. This will allow participants to crosscheck what they know from other sources and validate it.
We work to help you succeed your career reorientation and to provide the necessary tools and affordable support to realize your dreams.
