For instance, someone with a pharmaceutical degree might excel in on-site clinical trial work, medical writing, or join biostatistics, while a doctor could focus on a department in pharmacovigilance. Here are some career paths in clinical research: Remember, there’s no one-size-fits-all career in clinical trials. More job profiles will be added gradually.
