It is understandable that many who work within the clinical research industry eventually want to start their own clinical research site. In this video i discuss what the startup expenses might be for you.
In today's video, I interview a client of my consulting company that started her own clinical research trial site at the beginning of 2016. 8 months later she is well on her way to having a profitable and sustainable business. While she has certainly faced her fair share of challenges as all startups do, she was prepared to weather the initial onslaught that comes with launching any new venture. Although there are always more challenges to face, I believe we have helped her build a solid foundation from which to grow on.
It's actually not that difficult. If you have a brand new clinical research site, finding an experienced clinical research study coordinator is probably your best option. This is especially the case if you, the site owner, does not have any experience. Often times, experienced study coordinators may feel under appreciated at their current place of employment, or perhaps it is a clinic that rewards their good work with more work. Whatever the case may be, you can usually find a good study coordinator without much effort. In this video I describe some strategies.
