Study Coordinator Support

Icon of a crowd of peopleStudy Coordinator Support Services

Principal Investigators can ultimately find a smoother process and save time by taking advantage of our study coordinator pool, which can provide investigators with team members who are already on staff and fully trained. All Clinical Trials Support Unit (CTSU) study coordinators are Good Clinical Practice (GCP) trained, and many coordinators have obtained or are working towards becoming either Society of Clinical Research Associates (SOCRA) or Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) certified. The study coordinator services span the entire scope of clinical trial study coordination.

Pairing together the correct coordinator or team of coordinators with the right projects for their knowledge, skills, and abilities is a crucial step in finding success with your research. The complexities and requirements in regulation, policy, and implementation of clinical research require an expert focused in that area. It takes significant time to hire, and then train and develop a clinical research coordinator. This becomes more relevant when the average length of a coordinator staying in their position is less than two years. 

The CTSU study coordinator services offer a model in which our study coordinator effort is recharged to the sponsor or study budget. Using a study coordinator from the pool can provide continuity during study team turnover and cushion faculty from carrying full personnel expenses when they only need fractional support.
