About this Program

As the development of new pharmaceuticals, devices and biotechnology products continues to expand, the number and complexity of the clinical trials necessary to gain regulatory approval continues to increase. EMU's clinical research administration program includes both didactic information and hands-on experiences in order to provide qualified new personnel to the clinical research enterprise. It also provides opportunities for professionals participating in the drug/device development process to increase their knowledge base as well as their research/creative skills.

Clinical research professionals are the individuals who design, conduct and supervise the final human testing of the drug and device development processes. They work in academic medical centers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries as well as in government agencies (e.g., FDA) that regulate the testing and new product approval process. Clinical research administrators play a vital role in this process.

The EMU CRA Program:

  • provides an academic experience which includes both didactic information and hands-on preceptorships in order to provide qualified new personnel to the drug and device industries.
  • provides an opportunity for professionals currently participating in the drug/device development process to increase their knowledge base as well as their research/creative skills.

Whether your abilities lie in the basic sciences, patient care, data analysis or medical and regulatory writing, you should consider a career in clinical research administration.
