Clinical Research Coordinator

The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) is a key team member working with the lead physician researcher, known as the Principal Investigator (Pl), to support medical research activities. This person performs an important project management role. 

The CRC role provides individuals with the opportunity to support cutting edge research while working closely with doctors, nurses, and other care providers within a health system and academic medical center. CRCs do not need to be medically trained or have 
an advanced degree. Project management skills, attention to detail, passion for research and innovation, and the desire to help patients will enable someone to be successful as a CRC. There are progressive levels within the CRC role, creating opportunities for growth and even management-level roles.
