Congratulations! You’ve completed your course work, you’ve passed the exams and now, as a trained clinical research associate (CRA), it’s time to begin the job search. Once the resumes you have sent out result in an interview, it’s time to think about the questions you may be asked. Here are the top five questions you can expect to answer during the clinical research associate interviews.
If you are a doctor born and educated outside the US, and have tried to practice medicine in the US, you know that it is a long and tedious journey. All states have various requirements that need to be satisfied in order to practice medicine, such as studying for and successfully completing the so-called “STEP” exams, as there are three steps to completion. Additionally, there is a certification by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates that must be completed. Finally, proficiency in English and participating in a medical residency, which can take years, and a great deal of money, completes the requirements. Not to mention the emotional, financial and social toll these processes can take on you if you cannot clear any step or fail to find a good residency program.
When you think of a pharmacist, you may envision a professional in a white coat dispensing your prescriptions, or a professional in a hospital setting, ensuring that patients receive the medications they need.

Meritize Financial looks beyond traditional credit scores and instead considers academic data to provide students who might not otherwise qualify for a loan, with the ability to apply for and secure a student loan.
Credit approvals for loans chiefly rely on credit scores and, for students, the availability of a co-signer. Often, students just have not had the time to establish a credit history, making loan acquisition sometimes difficult. Meritize believes good students make good borrowers and loan recipients and provides them with ways to secure loans for their education. Even if your academic record isn’t perfect, Meritize will work with you to customize a loan that meets your specific needs.
A Meritize loan has some great benefits:
Uses Academic Data for Better Loan Options
Offers Expedited Approval Process
Can be Repaid Over 5 Years
Has No Prepayment Penalty
Can Cover Full Cost of Tuition
Provides Full In-School Deferment Option
Offers a 90-day Grace Period
