Is a research assistant course right for you?

Clinical trial assistants have an intense curiosity that separates them from others in their field. If you have an interest in this role, you are usually interested in working directly with patients. CTAs can build a research assistant resume as pre-health students (in HS or college). Are you interested in research that could involves humans? Will you take your responsibilities seriously? If you feel confident you can answer “yes” to both questions, then our research assistant certification will be the next step to advancing your career goals.
