    Can be a good place to be for a few years if your lab understands how to handle high-turnover

    May 15, 2022 - Clinical Research Coordinator Associate in Stanford, CA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good place to network if you're looking to go further into clinical research or medicine - Great way to get patient facing experience if you're aiming a few years experience pre medical or graduate school - Some labs include CRCs on their papers for publishing (but not all) - PTO and sick time banks accumulate quickly and the PTO has a reasonably high cap

    Cons

    - Very limited upward mobility. Unless you want to aim for management in order to move up at all you either have to leave for clinical research industry jobs, go to medical school, or go to graduate school. - Your experience will vary depending on your PI and your manager, some labs are amazing and some are awful. - Clinical research on the academic side has high turnover by nature, many if not most CRCs are there for 1-3 years working on graduate school, medical school preparation, or figuring out next steps career-wise and don't intend to stay very long-term. If your lab isn't set up to handle this frequent changeover it can be stressful and contribute to burnout. - Depending on the research (ie with rare disease, oncology, or similar areas where you're dealing with very sick or dying people) it can be emotionally demanding and exhausting.
