Worldwide Clinical Trials – Why Work For Us?

Our mission is to facilitate the development of life-changing medicines by integrating clinical trials methodology, operational acumen and efficient technology.

Our highly consultative approach ensures that we treat each Phase I–IV drug development program with personal consideration and commitment to the unique needs of each client. We provide exceptional service with the highest degree of oversight, consistency and reliability.

Combining recognized therapeutic expertise with a robust global operations platform, we have managed clinical trials around the world since 1986 and strategically balance science, medicine, operations and commercial intelligence to achieve successful drug development.

Therapeutic Specialization: Focused Expertise

The medical and scientific heritage of our executive team is reflected in our business philosophy, which offers WCT clients a wealth of cardiovascular,chronic inflammatory disorders, neuroscience, rare disease, and other therapeutic expertise.

Our methodological rigor and ability to link experimental design to operational imperatives is the force behind the world-class clinical trials we conduct globally.

Global Reach: Worldwide Solutions

Our clinical operations, medical and scientific personnel are found in more than 60 countries; we understand local culture, regulatory requirements and standard practices of medicine to enable predictable study initiation and execution for our clients.

Technology: Flexible, Transparent, Integrated Systems

WCT clients benefit from our extensive portfolio of clinical trial technology. Each component is expertly designed to meet trial requirements, while attention to data integration promotes efficiency and fully transparent management reporting.

Founded in 1986 by Dr. Neal R. Cutler and his team, Worldwide Clinical Trials Incorporated began as an investigational site before expanding to become a global CRO in 1995. The business philosophy places an emphasis on site and patient focused clinical research.

Known for developing revolutionary and innovative techniques in interventional clinical research, the investigative site and later the CRO both became advocates for the need of methodological rigor in the design and execution of clinical trials across therapeutic areas.

The unfaltering emphasis on follow-through and senior management oversight for all projects increased the quality, safety and the speed of the drug development and has become a hallmark of the company.

Through consistent growth and a series of strategic mergers and acquisitions, Worldwide Clinical Trials has grown to become synonymous with innovation. The personalized and committed involvement at all levels of clinical development from single-site investigators to large Phase III studies is a unique offering of the organization. In an industry characterized by explosive growth and global capability, Worldwide Clinical Trials distinctly stands out as a differentiated and scientifically driven CRO in the world today.

At Worldwide, our people drive our success, which is why we hire the best and brightest talent from across the globe. But we don't just hire people with the right experience. We hire the right people with the right experience, people who want to work within a global company and contribute to a collective, global culture, who are curious and driven...but above all, who find a purpose in the work that we do. 

We know that our culture is defined not by a mission statement, but by the men and women who chose to call Worldwide home. We encourage our people to be who they are. To bring their unique background, expertise and personality to their work, day in and day out. 

Culture is more than holiday parties and softball teams (though we have both). It's more than contests and fundraisers (though we do these, too). And, it's about more than a united spirit, a "vibe" that you get when you visit one of our offices and the team greets you with open arms and can't wait to show you around. (Though this happens all the time...)

At Worldwide, we're about creating an environment where you can be you. And we think we're pretty good at that.

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in The Colony, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Worldwide Clinical Trials (The Colony, TX).


    I was called by a recruiter at the beginning of January to discuss the business and position. She said she would get back with me the next week but it actually took 2 weeks to get a meeting with the hiring manager set up. Another recruiter sent me a background check through docusign to fill out as soon as possible. On January 23rd I had an interview with the hiring manager for about an hour. I thought the conversation went very well. I sent handwritten thank you notes to all the recruiters and hiring manager. I called the 2 recruiters and also emailed all 3 contacts at the company I had. I understand that people get busy but to just leave a candidate hanging is wrong. Even with patience and nice emails that were written I never heard anything one way or the other back from any of them.
