The Benefits Of Hands On Experience In Clinical Research Career Development

There is no substitute for hands on experience in the clinical research industry.  This is even more true when trying to get hired as a clinical research associate or a clinical research coordinator.  I tell my students at all the time, get your hands on experience any way you can: volunteer, intern, work part time, find an entry level job, and work your way up!  There is no substitute for real world experience.
