Clinical Research Associates are currently the highest paid upper-level medical professionals in the pharmaceutical and medical industry, second only to physicians. Many remote and traveling (expenses-covered) jobs are available for CRA positions for those who have a background or certification training.
The obvious difficulty in searching for these positions is getting selected and through the interview process without experience. CCRP Course works directly with International Medical Graduates (MBBS, FMG, IMGs), MDs without residency, Bachelors of Science or Healthcare-Related Fields, Bachelors of Nursing, Nurses, and Masters of Science Graduates to achieve the knowledge, certification, and resume experience needed to be selected and hired by pharmaceutical companies. CRAs can expect to make between $75-90k/year within their first year. CRAs who are physicians from foreign countries are considered MDs in this position. CRAs who are nurses which transitioned are treated remarkably well among the hospitals they visit or monitor. As a supervisor of clinical trials, this also paves ways to enter higher-level administrative and leadership roles in medical centers, institutions, and pharmaceutical companies.
