The clinical research landscape is complicated and increasingly burdensome to clinician scientists. To better handle the evolution of the research, the role of the clinical research professional has become even more important; employing a top-notch clinical research workforce is critical. In this session attendees will learn how an AMC prioritized the role of the workforce by using the competency-based framework developed by the Joint Taskforce for Clinical Trial Competency (JTF), to implement many initiatives. These institution-wide strategic initiatives include 1) overhaul job classifications, 2) create advancement through a tiering process, 3) establish a professionals network, 4) align competencies with on-boarding and training, 5) create pipelines for clinical research positions, and 6)centralize a hiring service.
