The Heart of the Matter – Musings on Monitors

Ask a study monitor why they do what they do, and they’ll quickly tell you that they love being involved in clinical research. Then, they’ll usually add that they were lured by the money, the flexibility, and the variety.

Some of the necessary skills can be learned in school, especially if the course of study was in one of the physical sciences. Other skills can be taught as part of the new monitor’s onboarding and at individual study training sessions.
