Clinical Research Associate Training Course is a 110 module course led by Senior CRA and Physician of 25 Years, Dr.Kamal. This course provides the training, experience, interviewing, letter of references, and connections you need to get a job supervising clinical research efforts. We offer clinical research associate training and placement for nurses, science bachelor graduates, and international medical graduates.
Over 1.9 million students receive a bachelors of science every year. While a few go on to Ph.D., Masters, and Medical programs; many are ready to start their career. As a new student applying to the science job market, you may only find internships or recognize that even entry-level science jobs require 1-2 years of experience. More so, you may realize many of these jobs require intense labor in the lab, or just did not meet your expectations for your science degree. This is why a career as a CRA should be considered.
A Clinical Research Associate or Coordinator directs and supervises clinical trials that are run by physicians, nurses, and other science-degree holders. Unlike the jobs you currently can apply to on the market, a position as a CRA is actually much more difficult to obtain. While many generic courses exist on the market; we have seen that many of the students who come to us still cannot find a job afterward. This is because other courses do not supplement your training with the experience, referrals, examples, and connections needed to secure a CRA job. This science-based medical position can be done privately for pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, or academically in medical schools.

Nonetheless, for those who have always wanted a career in medicine or have a gap year before medical school; this is the next step to getting a head start in your career. Because the position is unlike actually working in the lab and requires a management role; you get 1-on-1 connections with physicians and medical staff that can lead to a better application for medical school and other medical careers later on.
Best of all; many of these positions accept remote staff (and some allow you to travel 20-100% with full expenses including food, housing, and travel covered). This can help you save money while also increasing your salary. CRA’s with our level of training can expect to make between $7,000-$12,000 a month; an amount that is not common in other science-degree careers.
Clinical Research Jobs Entry Level & Clinical Research Associate Jobs
Many CRAs are actually foreign-graduated doctors who opted not to take the USMLE or repeat their residency training. In fact, some of our students come to us immediately after moving to the U.S. and questioning what to do with an MBBS degree in America.
Unlike what you’ve learned during your 3-4 years in university or an international school; the information needed to become a CRA builds upon your degree. It is not a repetition of any course you’ve taken in undergrad and thus we have 110 modules (more than any other course available) to make you get the position you want as a CRA. Because we also provide the interview training (1-on-1 tutoring sessions) for the multiple rounds of interviews these companies do; you can expect to secure the interview request and pass all rounds.
The course covers 110 modules a CRA must know like the back of their hand. Based on your goals, we establish an hourly study schedule in your day to finish each module. You receive 1-on-1 teaching lessons by renowned Senior CRA lead Dr.Kamal after finishing each module. The course references over 80 textbooks and literature in CRA training to ensure you have the information that even your future colleagues and employers may not know. This will leave a lasting impression after each interview. Most students receive interview requests just 1 month into the course; another reason why the modules are self-paced.

Before placing your with one of our recruiters, we train you 1-on-1 for every interview around so you get the experience you need.
Careers With A Science Degree
While several careers exist with a science degree, the best exposure to a medical career with a science bachelor is through clinical research coordinator certification. This can be taken as early as your senior year of college to prepare for a job directly out of university.
CRA positions right out of undergrad are nearly impossible to get due to the yearly 1.9 Million graduates of science degrees (and approximate 2,000 applications per position). This is why certification is an essential investment in your career.
CRA positions after hiring will cover the expenses of travel, housing, food, and more if visiting clinical sites. Most pay $7-12k a month with the potential to move on to a CRA position after 2 years.
While many positions will fund or reimburse your CRA training; securing an initial position is the tough part. This is why our course provides 110 modules, training, immersion, and interview preparation with a Senior CRA and Physician of 20 years.
Our course makes almost anyone interested in making use of their science degree in medicine possible. We take on students with no medical background to full-on doctors looking for a better position due to their international medical degree.
