A day in my life at Clinipace
First thing, open Outlook and see what's in there, try to classify emails according to importance/urgency, and do my best solving/replying to them. Then, I start dealing with all of my "to do" tasks – like interacting with support professionals (accountants/lawyers in each country). I also spend time meeting our team, asking about progress of our studies, seeking solutions, and evaluating strategies in order to achieve an objective. Whenever possible, I read articles in connection to our activities or seek current information on various topics.
My "a-ha!" moment
With patients as our main interest and focus, there is nothing better than knowing that results of a study conducted by us have shown positive results, contributing to the community by benefiting many patients. As for our clients, getting a trial up and running faster than expected, accomplishing enrollment timelines in shorter periods than the estimated, and contributing to solutions are the most important moments.
