Clinical trial sites are the backbone of the pharma, biotech and medical device industries. On behalf of their clients, they test products and therapies on human beings and provide data back to the sponsor/client.
Given the exacting nature of the work, there are differences between the way a clinic runs if it is treating patients versus conducting clinical trials.
MEIRxRS published a guide on How Clinical Trial Sites Work. The guide provides workflows that demonstrate who does what in the clinic, how data is generated and where it flows.
This guide will be of interest to those seeking employment in positions such as clinical trial manager, clinical trial assistant, clinical research coordinator, regulatory affairs, project manager, research nurse, or principal investigator.
