Gold Standard Clinical Research Associate

Gold Standard for a Clinical Research Associate

Cogent Skills has worked with an expert group to develop a Gold Standard for the job role Clinical Research Associate. The Gold Standard defines the skills required to perform the job to best industry practice and sets a standard for the sector.

Gold Standards are developed by industry, at the request of industry. The life science sector recognised that there was no clear skills standard for the Clinical Research Associate job role and with the support of Cogent Skills established an expert group to develop a Gold Standard.

The expert group consisted of pharmaceutical companies, CROs, key training providers, lead bodies and the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
