Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, The Clinical Researcher of the Year – The Americas has opened its doors for entry.

Over the past decade, this prestigious competition has gained a strong reputation for uncovering the next set of talented clinical researchers currently working in the U.S. This has been achieved by offering a unique platform where entrants can share best practice, but while also supplying the means necessary to develop candidates skillset via performance-based feedback from high-level industry leaders.

The categories for the 2020 competition have been re-worked and adapted to better reflect latest trends within the industry. They have been designed to offer a competitive and thought-provoking test for newcomers to the competition, but to also offer a fresh challenge for returning candidates.

The challenges available for individual entry are Clinical Research Co-ordinator, New & Experienced Clinical Research Associate, Clinical Trial Manager and Project Manager. There are also challenges for a group of professionals to try in the Company Team, Strategic Team, and Site Team categories.

This competition is comprised of a three-stage process; the 1st being a multiple choice questionnaire of which a score of 70% is needed to advance. Stage 2 involves entrants completing a written assessment which will explore category specific competencies. The 3rd and final stage invites the highest scoring candidates from stage 2 to compete in the live head to head finals day where finalists tactical, creative, and innovative skills will be tested.

The competition will culminate at a grand and celebratory awards ceremony where the winners will be honoured for their fantastic achievements in front of senior industry figures, as well as the wider U.S clinical research community.

PharmaTimes are confident that this special 10th anniversary competition will reach even greater heights than before – if you would like to get involved then complete the multiple choice questionnaire today to get started! Or visit the website for more information on all aspects of the competition.
