Internship & Coop placement
The e-Internship program is of unlimited duration (till needed for the student, eg. till hired) and allows executing remotely (in an e-CRO environment) and on a part-time basis, most of the CRC and CRA tasks performed in all the clinical trials in order to acquire some “hands-on” experience, which is a major, and often, the only, hiring criterion.
Working with remote electronic databases, EDC (Electronic Data Capture) and CTMS (Clinicaal Trial Management Systems) is the other major hiring criterion, as today practically all clinical studies in the industry are made through the web and data is entered directly in the company database, so this experience is another key to successful hiring.
Co-op placement opportunities in our CRO/SMO Access Clinucal Research or in partner companies are provided on competitive basis whenever they arise.
