Many people are naturally attracted to the world of clinical research monitoring as a career due to the relatively high salaries.

These organizations are paid by contract research organizations or sponsors to find qualified candidates to be hired as CRA's (monitors). In this video I discuss some of the salary arbitrage that goes on in these situations.
