    If you can get in at Quintiles, I'd recommend just starting there. Fantastic upward mobility (supposedly within 2 years, you can move to a clinical research associate position), and the training you'd get there is invaluable. Honestly, a lot of people (not all) who work ina hospital research position just end up coming to work at Quintiles, PRA International, etc only to work that entry level assistant position so why not just start off at the organazation if you have the chance to do so in the first place? just my 2 cents.

    I am in the area of quintiles/iqvia. I do not have research experience, but I would love the opportunity to shadow nurses at quintiles to get a feel for it. Does anyone know who I can contact for this? I've tried looking but haven't had much luck
