Main Differences Between A Clinical Research Coordinator and A Clinical Research Associate

People who are research naive often struggle to understand the difference between a CRA and a CRC. One of the major differences between these two is that a CRA is required to have at least a bachelor's degree or equivalent while a CRC can work with only a high school degree. Another difference is that a CRA will not interact with patients and will focus on data quality while a CRC does interact with patients and collects data.
