As our clients know, KRC Inc. serves as a partner in clinical research with extensive experience in different phases of clinical trials. KRC Inc. provides focused, comprehensive planning, which leads to a successful trial.

We have good working relationships with some clinical research recruiters, CRO-s and pharmaceutical companies that recognize us as a reputable institution. Some of them are posting their openings for clinical research positions on our site . Our Diplomas state that the student has passed a program on ICH GCP which is a standard requirement in this industry.
So, who can become a clinical investigator?First of all, clinical investigator must be a physician with a license for medical practice in the country where he or she wishes to act as a clinical investigator. One of the reasons that most people become physicians is that they love to learn. Probably one of the most exciting times in the life of a physician is during medical school when he or she is continually gaining new knowledge and being exposed to new technology. But even in medical school, when you devote 100% of your time to learning, it is impossible to keep up with the remarkable expansion in medical science. However, since few of us have the luxury of remaining a student our entire career, most of us become increasingly obsolete from the very day we leave our training programs. If you want to remain close to medical science and to the development of new drugs and devices that correspond to the way you practice, then clinical research may be both emotionally and intellectually satisfying. At times, you can have the exciting experience of being involved in truly innovative products that are breakthroughs in treating specific diseases. When this happens, you feel that you have contributed to medicine and to the general welfare in a way that is difficult to replicate. . By participating in a trial you will learn basic pathology and pharmacology as you explore the mechanism of action of that specific drug. Also, you will come into contact with experts in the field who will instruct you in their methodology in treatment, and you will probably utilize, as part of the study, the most modern and specific method of measurement to assess both efficacy and toxicity. All these things are applicable and will improve your current techniques in treating your other, non-study patients.Another benefit to becoming involved in clinical research is becoming an author of the trial report. Frequently, investigators who have successfully enrolled a large number of qualified patients are asked to help write the trial results in a scholarly medical journal. This, of course, leads to many speaking opportunities, some of which are a natural result of the publication and others of which are because of promotion by the pharmaceutical company. Public speaking, by the way, can also result in some healthy stipends and a nice supplement to your income in and of itself. However, the chief joy comes from the fact that your colleagues perceive you to have some specific expertise. It is very gratifying to be able to introduce something in the way of new information to your comrades-in-arms.Your accreditation board may accept publishing in journals and attending start-up or post-trial meetings as continuing medical education credits. The same is true of those lectures you deliver.
