Our clinical monitoring team ensures the highest quality review of data and effective interaction with sites via both remote and on-site monitoring throughout a study. Our focus is on innovation, continuous data review and risk-based quality management principles with on-site and remote roles. As a member of our team, you will experience:

Our leadership in all therapeutic areas of clinical research provides you with opportunities in a variety of projects and exposure to a range of therapeutic areas. The clinical monitoring team works with many groups within PPD to ensure the oversight of data quality and integrity.


Given our scope and the complexity of our clients’ trials, you will have many opportunities to move and grow across our organization. Currently, more than 1,000 employees benefit from flexible promotions, in addition to those during regular promotion cycles, over the course of the year. You’ll acquire vital knowledge and hone important professional skills. You'll learn about developing therapies and medicines for patients in need, managing information and navigating the health care system.


Work for a global organization without leaving your ideal location. PPD is dedicated to supporting and fostering work-life balance and flexibility. Whether you’re working remotely, at clinical sites or in-house, PPD’s management teams nurture your internal connections.


Every person on our team works with our systems and communicates with the central project team and many colleagues in various departments.

Clinical Research Associate

Our team of CRAs have both on-site and remote positions, which provides an opportunity to gain experience across the full study life cycle and a deeper understanding of sites. As part of our traveling team of clinical research associates, you will visit medical staff at different sites, checking the documentation and process quality at each site to ensure patients are protected and that data are correct. The travelling roles are geographically aligned for better work-life balance. As a remote CRA, you will have the opportunity to use your therapeutic expertise and to be involved in site management while working remotely with project team members and relevant stakeholders. Our CRAs work closely with our sites and study teams to ensure quality study data, and that the quality of our work can withstand scrutiny. You probe data, inspect root causes of any issues, seek clarification, develop a clear plan of action and communicate internally and externally. To CRAs of all levels, PPD offers CRA Drive, a continuous training program with flexible promotions and varied career opportunities within a team-based model.
