The PharmaTimes Clinical Researcher of the Year – The Americas competition in association with MAGI will close for entry on the 31st January 2019 [*EDIT: Entry deadline has been extended to 25th February 2019] so start the entry process now to avoid running out of time!

Stage 1 of the competition involves completing a multiple-choice questionnaire in which a score of at least 70% is needed to progress onto the next stage – you can re-take the quiz as many times as you need. You can also save your progress during the questionnaire to come back to if needed so start it now!

Once the questionnaire has been passed, the next step is to complete a 1000 word essay or 1500 word essay for team entries (team entries can skip stage 1) and those entrants judged to have the best essays will be invited to the final stage of the competition. There will be one essay question for individual entries and another question for team entries.

Stage 3 will then see candidates complete a unique and challenging learning and development opportunity. The Finals will allow qualifying clinical researchers to complete on-the-day challenges, presenting to judging panels who will record scores across a number of parameters providing both quantitative and qualitative feedback to help candidates improve their performance. This process will be category specific so find out which category best suits your skills.
