Investigators: Participating in Medical Research: A Rewarding Endeavor

by | Aug 16, 2018 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Our clinical site management activities — from start-up through to study closeout — help to make your participation in a study a rewarding experience. At PMI, we strive to make your participation in medical research a positive process from start-up through to study closeout. Our study initiation visits generally include all the training you need to set your study up for success. A PMI project manager carefully oversees the study timeline, budget and tasks, and our Clinical Research Associate (CRA) visits your site regularly to monitor the study’s progress and assist you whenever needed. We also engage in ongoing, open communication with access to your PMI project manager or client representative.

The following represent investigator comments that we received from this survey:
