Clinical Trials Pharmacist
Michelle Donnison [BSc(Hons) Medical Physiology, 2011] is a Senior Pharmacy Technician at York Hospital, working on the conduct of clinical trials.
Michelle talked us through the varied roles that her current job involves, including the setting up of trials, dispensing of medicines, liaising with sponsors and hosting monitoring visits.
Unusually, Michelle had taken some of the relevant qualifications for her role before taking her degree, but she indicated which clinical trial related jobs would be done with a bioscience degree, or with additional training after a bioscience degree.
As well as the specifics of the role, Michelle also gave a very nice overview of the way that clinical trials are generally conducted.
