Clinical Research Associate (CRA) Sweden
Since November 2015
I have worked as a CRA from 1 November 2015 moving from being a CTA since March 2008. During the months before moving to be a CRA, I trained and studied to become a CRA at the same time as working full-time as a CTA.
Since I started as a CRA, I have been working on three protocols with starting up two of them and doing regular monitoring as well as all the following up on the studies both with the sites and with the study team. There is a lot to be learnt still and I am enjoying the challenges of solving all issues and also meeting new people and being out at the sites and most importantly, being part of geting new medication to patients in need of this.
