Internship Programs in the Biopharmaceutical Industry and Clinical Research

The situation within the industry is dire, simply because the Biopharmaceutical industry, unlike other professions, cannot afford to hire graduates straight out of college or university. Despite their skills and specialized academic training, they are unlikely to possess the necessary training to undertake a biotech or clinical research position. Any biotech company requires some experience but unfortunately, academia does not supply enough graduates with the specific training or experience to fully acquiesce into a new position within the biopharmaceutical industry. The difference within the industry is quite drastic because training programs are quite rare and due to the fact that training programs are difficult to gain access to necessitates an active involvement by the industry . Furthermore, clinical research degrees are extremely rare despite all of the academic research that takes place within universities. As such, it is difficult to ensure that individuals that apply to companies possess the necessary skills that are required to fulfill any new opening within a company. Either way, specialized training is something that needs to be explored, and currently there are not enough individuals to assume all of the roles that currently exist in today's market. Therefore, the industry is forced to take care of itself. Individuals that possess the necessary academic skills and experience are sought after in an environment conducive to extreme recruitment conditions, thus, requiring an individual with not only the capacity but the willingness to engage in the competitive waters that the industry offers.

Along with their own training, Kriger Research Group International, a major International Contract Research Organization, IBPA, has developed internship programs that can help facilitate the hands-on aspects of clinical research coordination and monitoring. As such, quality assurance and regulatory affairs have become a natural progression of involvement within the industry and clinical/data management is supported by such complex tactics and reliant protocols.
