This is the CRC Research Project:

Identifying risk and protective factors for burnout and well-being

in clinical research coordinators (CRCs) and clinical research assistants (RAs).


What is the CRC Project?

Clinical research coordinators (CRCs), also called research assistants, are typically young college graduates who seek research experience prior to pursuing post-graduate education in a medical or clinical field. Despite their crucial role, there is no standard for what the role should entail or what support infrastructure is needed to maintain their well-being. As researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, we aim to characterize and describe the risk and protective factors which influence CRC well-being.

We are inviting a diverse sample of CRCs and clinical RAs nationwide to complete an online survey to help us answer the question: "Who is the CRC?" To participate or learn more, feel free to click the link below or explore our web site.
