Unmet Medical Needs? Impacted by unmet Life Sciences Staffing Needs?

Clinical Professionals

Whilst the majority of Clinical Professionals clients are working to discover and develop innovative, cost effective medicines that address unmet medical needs they are not impacting the unmet needs of training and developing new recruits into the pharma industry. The impact is highlighted within entry level Clinical Trial Administrators and Clinical Research Associates (CTA/CRA). In the past the Pharmaceutical industry had highly developed training programs for these sought after candidates. As the use of outsourcing models and CRO’s has increased and fewer Pharma businesses embark on their own R&D a substantial gap is developing in newly trained Life Science graduates entering the market to commence a career within R&D. As further financial cuts are made within R&D spend this already dire situation continues to escalate.
