CRA was asked...1 March 2019

1. Limited time on site, say 3 hours, what would you do. 2. What is done at an average visit...make sure to include meeting with coordinator and PI 3. How to increase contacts with the PI, or handle a very busy PI. 4. Finished early...asked if any extra structure, whether using CTMS--they use Inform and CTMS, except for a few old studies where -oh no Lotus notes are used. So don't say anything about not liking Lotus notes, though no one does.

IQVIA is very bad at getting back to applicants ..I had the original interview March 1 and I am still waiting to finalize details, and fortunately have another position. I might try to contact an internal recruiter (IQVIA recruiter only) to determine if the application is being reviewed. IQVIA doesn't like dealing with third party recruiters, for eg kelly, barrington-james, etc. You can find these on linkedin, message these recruiters or email. Enter IQVIA recruiter into search terms. Less

Thanks for your information. I have been waiting for reply from IQVIA for months now. Less

The phone questions threw me off guard the most, like naming the elements of an ICF

3 Answers

it helped a lot, Thanks.! Good luck at your New Job.

How the heck could you be thrown off by those questions???

There are quite a few elements to the ICF. The first is an overview of the trial and trial subjects that will be involved, along with duration. Then it will provide an overview of assessments, randomization , etc. Risk, Injury, Cost, and Confidentiality language is covered too. And it will state that it is voluntary, and the subject has had an opportunity to ask questions. Again, there are other elements, but I think I have covered some of the main ones. Hope this helps.
