Service description

Experienced fee-for-service clinical research coordinators for hire who provide study-related services ranging from regulatory document preparation, participant recruitment, data collection and entry, and study monitoring. Available in an effort or hourly based model.


Benefits for users

  • Flexibility: Instead of committing to permanent staff, departments can hire our Study Coordinators for short-term needs. Our Study Coordinators can be hired part time to cover for projects that do not require full FTE.
  • Availability: In most cases, our Study Coordinators can be available immediately, saving the department the time and effort needed for job posting, recruiting and hiring permanent staff, which can take at least 2-3 months.
  • High quality: Our Study Coordinators are effective and well trained, have the appropriate credentials, and are experienced with the USC clinical research environment and regulatory procedures. They are adaptable and experienced in different disciplines.
  • No administrative hassle: All HR, management and credentialing requirements are handled and maintained by the Clinical Research Support team.

Cost

Recharge model options:

  • Effort: This is the most frequently used model. There is a minimum commitment of 30% effort and a 6-month timeframe required for this effort-based option.
  • Hourly: This is the less frequently used option. The hourly rate option does not require a minimum commitment and is primarily for very short-term needs (e.g. covering for Study Coordinators out on leave). Investigators will only pay for the hours worked (this does not include vacation or sick leave).
