This novel clinical research program, developed through the efforts of Campbell University’s College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (CPHS), provides students with the didactic and experiential training necessary for the development of careers as clinical monitors or coordinators to work in contract research organizations (CROs), pharmaceutical companies, or academia.
The objective of the major is to prepare students for distinguished careers in clinical research. Graduates of this program are expected to play a wide variety of roles in the clinical research and drug development process. Clinical research has emerged as a multidisciplinary enterprise that requires a highly trained team of clinical investigators serving a variety of functions.
Students complete a semester-long internship during their final semester, providing hands-on experience and preparation for a career in clinical research. The growing demand for high-quality clinical monitors and coordinators suggests students from this program will receive excellent employment opportunities immediately following graduation.
