Clinical Researcher of the Year - The Americas 2021

The PharmaTimes Clinical Researcher of the Year – The Americas competition is back again for 2021, designed to uncover the exceptional talent of clinical researchers across the Americas. Over the past decade this challenge has gained a strong reputation of being a valuable learning and development opportunity for clinical researchers in pharma, clinical research organisations (CROs) and investigator sites.

Last year’s landmark 10th-anniversary celebration of the competition was a truly unique affair with the finalists all competing virtually in fantastic and all-new challenges. The 2021 finals days will follow the same platform and will once again have brand new and re-worked challenges in store for entrants.

The categories for 2021 have been updated with all new criteria, making the competition feel fresh for returning contestants, but with a range of entry points covering a variety of different roles and experience levels for new candidates.

Among the expertly curated categories, there are New & Experienced CRA, Clinical Research Co-ordinator, as well as Clinical Trial and Project Manager. There are also team-based categories available for entry alongside the individual ones to add even more depth to your experience.

All finalists receive valuable mentoring and feedback on their performance; invaluable for personal and professional development, it’s also a great way to validate training and highlight experience.
