CRA BASICS, TIPS AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT FOR ENTRY LEVEL CLINICAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATES OR THOSE INTERESTED IN BECOMING CLINICAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATES

Recommended Books for Beginner CRAs

Books-06 So if you are looking for a job and are researching how you can get your foot in the door as a CRA, it’s important to learn the basics of monitoring and clinical research. There are several ways you can do this but it can be overwhelming trying to sift through all the information. Instead take a focused approach I recommend you stay on this site clicking on the blog posts in this blog. It’s all from me and I am a real CRA actually in the field. In fact, I am typing this when I should be booking my next flight to a site. I am as up-to-date on the new technology and terminology as anyone and even more so than your average trainer because I am actually still doing the job. I recommend you purchase the following books: The CRA’s Guide to Monitoring Clinical Research– This is a great book to get your feet wet. It gives some great tips on how you can do the job effectively and successfully. It is a great resource for you because it is easy to read through, clear and well written. It will help you gain a broad understanding on the pharmaceutical industry. CRF/ ICH GCP Handbook– The handbok is revised every year, however, the variations differ so little that there is little difference between the old versions and the most recent. You don’t need to read this cover to cover but you do need to review some key guidelines I will go over these specific guidelines in another post. You also need to have this handbook as a reference. This handbook contains the foundation of the industry. I hope this helps!  -Sara
