APEX CRA Program

The Accelerated Program of Education, Exposure, and Experience for CRAs (APEX CRA) provides foundational clinical research training - including project and system experience - to new hires who are recent college graduates and have less than a year of monitoring experience. Through this program, you'll transform into a credible and experienced CRA I.

What you need to get started
  • Minimum Bachelor's degree in life sciences/data sciences/pharmacy/nursing or other related discipline
  • Less than 6 months clinical experience
  • Strong interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills within a matrixed team
  • Experience working in a self-driven capacity, with a sense of urgency and limited oversight
  • A client-focused approach to work and flexible attitude with respect to assignments/new learning
  • The ability to manage multiple tasks, evaluate unpredictable scenarios and achieve project timelines while applying your understanding of study protocol(s)
  • An honest and ethical work approach to promote the development of life changing treatments for patients
  • Strong computer skills and aptitude to learn quickly

How we help you grow
As you progress, APEX CRAs perform billable project tasks to support the CRAs and Clinical Operations Leads (COLs) with a focus in three developmental areas: Project Support, Initiation CRA support, and Site Facing support. You'll be required to complete the ACRP Entry Level Knowledge Assessment and are enrolled in a 1-year membership to the ACRP. You'll also work closely with CRAs to gain exposure to and experience with the CRA role and its responsibilities across a period of three to six months.

During this experience, you'll have the opportunity to practically apply in-class concepts with day-to-day application by working with clinical systems including Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS), Electronic Data Capture, Safety Information Systems, and TMF platforms, and benefit from both instructor-led trainings and ongoing coaching and support of Line Managers and COLs.

Finally, APEX CRAs accompany CRAs for observational and co-monitoring support on-site or during remote visits which combines learning for the APEX CRAs and workload aid for their CRA colleagues. Upon completion of the program, you're well-positioned to independently function within the CRA I role and to immediately begin successful monitoring!

Travel expectations:
The CRA role is a largely field based role that requires frequent travel multiple times per month. Investigator sites participating in studies span the country, from large research centers to smaller offices, so traveling to them is a part of the CRAs role. You can expect at least five trips per month that are multi-day, overnight stays in different locations. Travel time can vary widely depending on the location of the site, flights, proximity to the airport and travel delays. In addition, there are other factors that will impact the travel times including your location, the study you are working on and the location of the sites. During the first six months, travel will be limited but, as your development continues, traveling will increase. CRAs have the opportunity to work a mix of in office and from home.
