Please share a little about yourself
I am a clinical research professional with experience in diverse therapeutic areas. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from University of Buea in Africa, after which I came to the United States and completed Medical Assistant certificate program. I was working as Medical Assistant in a private practice when a colleague informed me about Sollers.
What do you like about your experierence with Sollers?
I had very limited knowledge about clinical research when I first contacted Sollers. The admissions team was professional, approachable and enthusiastic to guide me and share career prospects in clinical research. I like that they were attentive and professional.
Did anything surprise you about your experience with Sollers?
Yes, actually. Since I'd never heard about Sollers, I didn't know what to expect. Overall experience was great, but what I found particularly surprising is the dedication of professors in my success; they gave me time and were always available to guide me. I was also surprised that the career services team started building my resume just within few months of my starting the program.
What are your career goals / future plans?
After completing the Clinical Trials Management program, I immediately found placement as Clinical Trials Manager with Weill Cornell in New York. I am very interested in clinical research and hence pursuing my Master's in Clinical Research / Pharmacovigilance.
Do you have any advice / tips for prospective students?
I'd say do your research. Although there are many short training programs in clinical research, I found Sollers College as the only approved institution that provides training on industry tools and exposure to industry projects, which are very vital to get a job when you don't have prior experience. Clinical research is a career of the future, so make an informed decision.
