I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help and
guidance. The KRC CRA development course provided me all of the background
and interviewing skills to land a position with ClinQua and now with
Quintiles Transnational, the largest CRO in the world. The opportunity for
growth in new therapeutic areas, internal advancement, continuing education
and travel are all things that make being a CRA a phenomenal career and not
just a job. I am eternally grateful to all of KRC's staff for their
continued support even after I had completed my course, which really showed
me the dedication your staff has to their job, you really want to see me
succeed. something quite rare in the world today. The experiences I had at
KRC were invaluable, especially being helped out with my CV, presentation is
everything and your staff knew how to properly present my education and
background in a way that I was not properly trained to do. I honestly feel
that is one of the most important things about your program, the fact that
they will help you prepare a CV that will attract recruiters, CRO's and
Pharmaceutical companies which is critical for landing job interviews.
Looking back I wouldn't change a thing about my experiences, I would only
encourage anyone who is thinking about entering the clinical arena to
seriously consider your program because it is so much more than what it
seems, and I think both you and your staff are the main reason for that.
Your course provided me all of the intangible elements that I needed to
succeed and I will always be thankful that I've gotten to know you and your
staff, especially Head of Training Department. If anyone was to ask me I would say that the
training I received at KRC was critical to my success and if you have
students who want to ask some questions please let them know that I will
make time to answer as many as I can.

A testimony from Soumaoro@optonline.net
I'm very pleased to inform you my successfully recruitment by Organon USA, after a month and half of waiting for regular hiring process. I finally signed with Organon for a full time Clinical Trial Documentation Associate position and started Monday march 21st, 2005. I'm very grateful to everybody at Kriger Inc., especially Nick Allan, Chrissie (Biorole recruiting) and those at the Headquarter who provided all the necessary support during Organon reference check. Although the present position seems to be not directly related to the CRA training and duty, but it represents for me an important step getting in the challenging field of Clinical research. I'm very happy with this position, chosen among dozen of offers just after my career training with Kriger.
I will be pleased to see my present testimony posted in Krctraining web site to show how Kriger training department and personnel help people around the word to materialize their dream.
Thank you and let keep in touch.

Subject: Dear CRA certifcation team
To all those who have helped me compete the CRA certification program,
I just want to say one thing to all who have helped me accomplish my CRA certification goal.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
With the wonderful help, advice and insight, I was able to complete the CRA certification course in the time that I did. Not only were the staff helpful with the CRA study material, but also with follow up information that expanded the knowledge base of what a CRA is all about. In addition, the clinical trial projects that I participated in gave me a leg up on clinical trial monitoring experience that is needed to get the CRA job hunting process underway. And on top of this, Kriger has a department that will help design and build an excellent resume that highlights your work experiences and aligns them to CRA job activities.
So, to all that are reading this testimonial and thinking about pulling the trigger and enrolling in the CRA certification program, I can tell you it is really worth it. Thanks again KRGI training staff as well as to Angela and Nafisa.
All the best

MANY THANKS TO THE WHOLE TEAM OF KRC
I thank to all of you for my accomplishments and success in Clinical Data Management field. Your great support, encouragement and guidance during the training and afterward helped me gain a position of Senior Clinical Data Manager in a very short period.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME TO FIND MY WAY IN THIS GREAT FIELD!!!

I'm very pleased to inform you my successfully recruitment by APOTEX INC. , Canada's No. 1 Pharmaceutical company in manufacturing. I'm very grateful to everybody at Kriger Inc., especially Head of Training Department who provided all the necessary support during my course of QUALITY ASSURANCE AND REGULATORY AFFAIR. Although the present position seems to be not directly related to the quality assurance, but it represents for me an important step getting in the challenging field of pharmaceutical industries. I'm very happy with this position.
I will be pleased to see my present testimony posted in Krctraining web site to show how Kriger training department and personnel help people around the world to materialize their dream.
Thank you and let keep in touch.
I would like to submit my testimonial. I found Kriger through Official Stanford University School of Medicine career site.
where it was mentioned next to the major companies in the industry: Pfizer, Glaxo Smith Kline , Abbott Laboratories, Wyeth . Johnson and Johnson and Bristol-Myers-Squibb...
Here is a quote form this article that helped me to make up my mind:
"..., Kriger Research Center, offers […] you a leg up in the industry by offering nationwide courses in professional development in the biopharmaceutical industries. Classes focus on current regulations, phases of clinical drug trials and compliance requirements for the industry. If you have a solid background in the sciences but want to understand this industry better, investing in one or more of their classes may help you decide whether or not this is the career track you want to take. This training may also give you an advantage over other prospective candidates. "
I am taking their newly updated CRA course right now and I must say this is one of the best courses I have ever had. I feel like I started to understand how this industry really works.
I was just offered a 3-4 month, temporary position at Research Corp. It isn't a CRA position, but a lot of the work I will be doing is auditing the paperwork that the CRA does. My title is Document and Compliance Associate. I believe that my primary duty will be writing informed consents for upcoming studies and IRB approval.
With this 4 months, plus the 6 months I get when I finish my certification, I will have almost a year experience to help me break into the field.
Of course, working 8-5 pm M-F will put a damper on my certification progress, but I think the opportunity for the experience is worth taking longer to finish.
Dear Head of Training Department,
I wanted to inform that I have been hired with a very excellent company APOTEX INC.
(Canada no. 1 pharmaceutical) here in Toronto as a Clinical Operation Technician.
I am very excited! The course is excellent, it set me in the right direction to the
position I wanted. The manager of the clinical research department was very happy that
I had taken the initiative to learn on my own and the quality of knowledge I received
from Kriger Inc.
Thank you for your help.
My name is Shilpa , I have completed the CRA
program in May 2005. It is my pleasure to inform you
that a consulting firm is offering me a job as a
Functional Consultant-Bio-IT, the clients of this firm
are pharmaceutical companies. My responsibilities will
be similar to CRA and in addition I will be using
statistical software for project and result analysis.
I highly appreciate your help.
Head of HR, Professional Development & Training Department
I am writing this after joining GEREQ as a Project Manager; I was able to secure this position because of the extensive in-depth training provided during the CRA Professional Development Program. I joined the company in Sept 04 after completing the course in end July 04.
The course material studied sincerely and with dedication sharpened my inquisitive mind and as I progressed in the interactive modules I developed a strong critical analytical approach towards scientific problems and excellent prioritization skills
The program taught me how to focus upon and develop the following skills:
- Detailed knowledge of ICH –GCP guidelines/ FDA regulations
- Importance of correct reporting of Adverse and Serious Adverse events
- Keen attention to details and ability to multitask
- Monitoring Clinical trials
Whatever I have achieved and the position I am at now is all due to the continuous help, encouragement and guidance of the online and in-house instructors who are very experienced, patient and understanding and they addressed all my questions promptly.
The final exam is very exhaustive and tests all the factors required to be a successful clinical research professional and all the questions asked during the interviews were from the course material.
The project work following the final exam is very detail oriented and one requires extensive, detailed and complete knowledge all the modules in the program in order to present it successfully.
I am indebted to Kriger all my life who played a pivotal role in helping me reach where I am now.
Thank You Anna, if I can be of any help anytime in my life you can count on me.
I would like to tell you what a great school you have and commend you for your excellence. After spending two months attempting to find the training for my future job orientation, Kriger came to the rescue. I was not familiar with the program of Clinical Data Management, but after learning more about it, its success rate and its very reasonable fees I decided to try it. The course work exceeded my expectations. The most informative on line and on class hands-on-training, presented real-life scenarios and helped me to gain a position of Clinical Data Coordinator at Innovus Research Inc. All my happiness I would like to share with you. Thank you Kriger, you deserve to be the best.
Clinical Data Coordinator
Hello Fred,Sorry for the late e-mail. I have been very busy. I started work today, and although it was mostly reading SOP's and meeting people, I am very excited about the job. So here is my quote, I give you permission to use it for your website:
Dear Kriger,I am glad to report that I have been given an opportunity to work as a CRC at Biovail Contract Research for a mat leave term of 1 year. I am happy to say that the courses I took at Kriger as well as advise from Kriger Instructor Mohammed Ghannam helped me immensely in recieving this job. Thank you very much for providing the basis necessary for this great chance.
I would like to share with you my impressions about my interview in Texas. First of all it had organized very well and has last from 9 am to 1 pm. The agenda of my trip was sent me a day before. I met with:
·Director-Human Resources (This lady asked me to sigh confidential agreement and informed me about benefit opportunities with her company and supplied me with the whole package of appropriate documents),
· Medical Director – this gentleman while spoken with me, put emphasize on advantages working in Texas in comparison with Toronto. He told me about the perspectives of their company (it’s cost increases double every year, for instance). He told me that their lawyer has possibility to obtain work visa for me during 3, maximum 5 weeks. He worked before in Toronto at the same position and had heard about Kriger Inc. as international company with offices in many countries.
·In-house interview with Clinical group – 5 people including Head of Department. There were general questions about monitoring procedure, about my previous experience and skills. I felt myself almost comfortable because it was very friendly and we had chances to smile and joke some times. They did not dig into details. They told me that at first time a new monitor would work together with some of experienced monitor. I asked them did they mean co-monitoring? Yes, they did.
· Then we had lunch offside.
· All my expenses were reimbursed fully.
Thank you for helping me get a job!
I wanted to report that I have been hired with a very excellent
company here in South Florida as a Clinical Research Coordinator. I am

I am so grateful to you for steering me into the right direction and for being so understanding and open minded for all my questions and concerns. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your helpful advice, support and generous encouragement.
Please, send my warm regards to Bella. She helped me with the Resume and an interview preparation. My Resume made me stand out as a better applicant. Everything she supplied me was right on target and she gave me the best possible interview preparation. My interviews would not have gone as well if I had tried to do it on my own. I appreciate her quick and personal responses to my emails. She must get hundreds of emails a day and the fact that she was able to personally respond to all of us really speaks volumes about her and her personal and professional integrity.
I found CRA-Program extremely informative, extensive and helpful and would recommend it to anyone who is truly serious about getting a career as a CRA.
I owe you a lot. Keep up the great work!

This program is best . I took the course after which I got a lot of support from the Kriger Group in gaining experience and knowledge about the industry. I am just glad to say that I got a perfect job with a US based company as CRA II. During my orientation in the first week with this company in a group of CRAs with more than 10 years experience, the orientation facilitator couldn't believe I was less experienced than the rest of the group. This program is excellent, and the support and care is unbelievable. Thanks Kriger.

Each lesson was an opportunity for me to expand my knowledge and to help

At first I was also skeptical when I started the program, I had read all the testimonials
of former KRC professional students who had nothing but praise for the professional
development program. But still I was amazed at the variety of professional spectrum
from doctors to nurses to lawyers taking up the professional development courses
and admitting an instant increase in job mobility and compensation.I was drawn to the fact that
KRC provided on hands internship projects for the students in my case for the CRA program.
I went into the program with some experience in the field but after I was done with the competitive exam
and the tasking projects, I found myself at a new level of expertise and appreciation for the Clinical Research
field. I got a job with one of the top pharmaceutical industries in USA and an instant boost of salary of over 15%.
Thanks to Irin and all the project cordinators who helped me through and served as mentors.

I have been trying to phone you several times since our last meeting just to tell you haw happy I am that I finally found the right direction for my career choosing the QA course at Kriger institute.I am so impressed with Sunday's QA classes, with QA instructors , the advantages of on line learning and possibilities of exploring deeper and deeper the whole material. As you told me, this is a really real commitment. I am so happy that I am part of it .Thank you vary much for everythingQA studentZivcevska
Hello KRC AdmnistratorI have received my Diploma Certificate. I am very grateful to KRC staff for this wonderful course. I enjoyed it and I am busy pursuing the projects to gain hands-on experience. Hope I will get someone to introduce to the course.Thanks again.Sincerely,Mary Mwaura
Hello Kriger Team:
I have been taking the CRA course and have found it quite gratifying. I
completed the sessions and will begin the projects and hopefully write the
final exam by the end of the summer. Since I have been taking the course
I have received interest from employers across the united States and Canada. To my delight I am
now currently employed with an international Laboratory in Ontario
conducting toxicology studies even before I completed the course!!!. I have been very busy, however I hope to
complete the CRA course so that I may be on my way to finding employment
in the field.
I wanted to thank the team at Kriger because employers take interest in
someone who is knowledgeable in the pharmaceutical and clinical trial
process. Without your help I would not be employed in toxicology clinical research right now.
PS: I must be the only student who is taking a long time to complete the
CRA course. Now that I am confident in my current laboratory position I
can return to the CRA course and follow it to completion.
Dear Bruce:Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your summer. As you are aware I have been working here in Texas after your excellent CRA course and your recommendations, but I am seeking CRA positions back in Canada and I am now in the final stages of hiring with recruiter.I was wondering if I could use you for a reference again as Kriger forms a significant part of my clinical experience.Any assistance you can give me would be greatly* appreciated!Many Thanks,
thank you very much for sending me diploma. its so beautiful and awesome.
Dear Head of Training Department!
Hope this mail reaches you in best of health and spirit.
many thanks for your programme and i have got an placement at an therapeutic research limited.
i would surely find new persons for the course.
looking forward to hearing from you
with warm regards
Hi Nick,This is Simon (former student) writing to thank you and all course instructors at Kriger for their good work. I finished my CRA course in March of this year and now (may) i have been offered a job in pharmaceutical company (Clinical Data Analyst). your course played the major role in getting the job. Thank you very much and keep doing the good job.Best regards,Simon
I am hired for short term assignment as clinical data auditor . I have done CRA diploma from KRC and volunteered for online projects.
I thank you for all the support needed for this assignment.
I am really enjoying the Medical Terminology class. I know a lot of these medical terms
just from high school and taking neuroscience courses in college ( that
was one of my majors). Everything is easy to find- I 'm comfy and the
material is great so far! Thank you for your concern. I will let you
know if I have problems/suggestions. I have to admit that beyond the
first quiz, it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. I thought it
was going to be more like an anatomy quiz versus a terminology quiz
(just from the material that is given), but that keeps me on my toes!
Hello,I'm writing because I'd like to know if I could continue the CRA course where I left off a few months ago. I had started a new job working as a Clinical Trial Associate, the course helped me get that job, but I'd like to continue now that I actually will have some time to dedicate to the course. I was also wondering if I would then continue with the new course or the old version? Thanks.Regards,Diana
Dear Anna,Today I had an interview with Sr. Recruiter
from Device Company specialized on
the treatment of chronic pain and neurological disorders. My answers
were good,. My previous
experience including with your company training was exactly the same that they want.Thank you very much!
Subject: RE: Clinical studies/ trials
Thank you Brian for your replies. It seems very useful when one could
compare his point of view with the perspectives of the industry leaders.
I want to send you just a few words as a note of thanks.
I am studing Session 12 right now.All these sesssions
are very extensive and in detaild
explained.Also,Saturday's Session was realy
helpful. Yury explained CRA's duties and
responsibilities and cleared it up.
I am really satisfied and fulfilled.
Thank you Best Regards.
Dear Dr Venkat,
The program offered by Kriger Research Centre is very helpful in getting in depth knowledge of clinical research and GCP.
As enquired by some of my friends in same profession, I passed on the reference of KRC to them. One such case was at CliniRx, Gurgaon.
I hope Ranbaxy shall get benefit of informative training programs conducted by Kriger Research Centre.
Good morning.I am Dr.Emad Abdulkarim,one of your doctor class's student.I passed the evaluating exam on last September.
Here,I would like to say a (very big) thanks to all Kriger Research Center staff and a very special thanks for the great woman(Head of Training Department) for her real support to the group and her lovely way for follow up our medical needs.. I know that the words is not enough to appreciate her great job,, but I am sure that each of us (and specialy I )will remembering her with each practical day in futuer...thanks again and again .

Hello,I have had my interview and it went well. I will hear this week or beginning of the following. She was very interested in the KRC training program and wanted more information. She might have some of the current people look into it for training. I am hoping I get the position, it sounds very fascinating and I know I would enjoy it. Thank you for the support.......Thank you,Eva
This is Dr. G... from Montreal, Canada. I
joined on-line Clinical Research Associate program at
KRC from 2 March 2005.
I have just now completed first two sessions. I find
your course is excellent. You have superb
material and coverage for this diploma program...G... Ph.D.
I enrolled in the CRA program and I have learned so much. I am currently
on session 37 and have found excitement in biotechnology all over again.
The training program at KRC is educational and i have read many success
stories of KRC graduates securing jobs within respectable pharmaceutical
companies. I hope to be so lucky...Sincerely,Andrea
Dear Ms Anna ,I will recommend your program to many other medical
professionals whether Somalis or other nationalities in my contact
Lastly may I assure you that your highly esteemed institution
reputation is evident once a professional joins, and for that reason
dosen't requires any ads. But as in my case people in 3rd world
countries aren't aware of that E-learing or online is as good as the
in-class sessions. And I have no doubt that anyone (medical/science
professionals that I availed to it won't hesitate to join. As of now
believe it or not my boss who have done Bsc in Chem and Msc in
Pharmacology, is eager to join as early as possible. And has been
introduced to KRC only during my job interview session. Since I
displayed my KRC CRA Diploma and transcript.

Dear Dr. Venkat
I have already undertaken an on line training program in Clinical Research Program form your respective training organization. I found it really helpful, scopeful and interesting.
Presently I am working in R... Labs. Ltd. as a Research Associate in International Drug Regulatory Affairs Deptt. Since it is a new exposure for me, I intend to undergo another training program in Quality Assurance/ Regulatory affairs. Kindly allow me to do the same.
I shall be highly grateful to you.

I sent my resume to ....Therapeutics for the position of Clinical Data Associate and received the following reply:
Dear Mr. .....
What are your salary requirements? Would you be willing to relocate to
at your own expense? New Jersey
Please advise when you can.
This is the effect of a good resume and thank you again.
Can you give me a hint of the salary range for this type of position? I appreciate any help that I can get.
Thanks a lot Bryan,
I appreciate greatly your feedback and input. I am also really impressed
by your speed, it is a real life interaction! This will be of
great help for me because I want to finish this program as soon as

by Dr. Bruce, are the best programs I have ever got over the past 23 years.
Dr. Tarek ...(Ph.D.Medical Biochemistry)
Thank you very much for your effort too. I learned more than I thought and
can now go to an interview with greater knowledge and confidence than I did
before. You may find this interesting. About three months ago, before I
started the course, I had a job interview in Boston. It was a temporary
assignment for 6 months at a CRO called AAI. I didn't get the job. Then a
few weeks ago you sent out a note about a student who I believe got it. At
least the city and contractual time period were the same. I'm sure that if I
had taken this course earlier I would have gotten a position at one of the
two companies I had interviewes at.
I will continue with the Quality Assurance Program too.
Dear KRC staff!
I would like to let you know that I have recently passed Canadian
Registered Nurse Exam.
And I wanted to thank you all for your help in the preparation
I think that it was my best decision to join your training program.
Before that program I didn't even have a chance to pass that exam in
such a short time.
Thanks so much for your follow-up and feedback. Over
the weekend, I will resend my response for session 15
in order to get credit for it.
You guys are the best! I am really enjoying this
course and my experience with KRC.
Thanks very much for explaining this concept. Your
description was more helpful to me than the article in
the British Medical Journal.
I would like to thank you for everything, as today I received the

I would like to thank you for the great support and extremely valuable

Thank you very much for your immediate response, I feel much better now,
You are righht, I have pushed myself the past few weeks, and now am having
some eye strain and headache, but I will be fine, just a bit of rest. Thank
you for your much needed support and advise. Have a nice day.
Thanks for the positive email. It gives me a lot of hope and confidence in
the course that I have undertaken, and the support that I can expect from
you and team at Kriger. I have completed upto session 10-3 and am planning
to go fast with the remaining sessions.
I have started working on my CV as per your guidelines. I plan to send you
the draft after I read it one more time.
I have filed the list of available positions that you have sent. I am not
sure what is the right time to apply, but I think I must wait till I
complete the course and practical project.
Hello Bruce & Anna,
Goods news! I finally got the offer from the employer. Thanks a lot for all
But I might be still needing your help in the future as this is only a 6
months contract in Boston but hoping that this will go to a permanent
One more favor please, could you please resend the reference letter to me
Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks a lot guys.
I wanted to let you know that I have PASSED MY EVALUATING EXAM. I also
request you to inform Dr. Anna.
I THANK KRIGER RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOR MY ACCOMPLISHMENT. You as a team have
done a Wonderful Job. You Provided us with the material and Dr. Mudhar
taught us the subject very nicely. He not only helped us understand the
subjects but also told us what was important for this Examination. He would
even make us learn certain important things, even if we were not prepared
with the topic he would still discuss and explain things to us.Our efforts
to Pass the Exam are well channelized and Chances to pass the Exam are
THANK YOU VERY MUCH,
I haven’t heard from you for the last couple of months. I just wish to let you know that I already completed my final examinations and fortunately received my Diploma for the Clinical Data Management Program. I started my training last summer and I felt a deep sense of accomplishment when I completed these challenging tasks. I have found the final examinations the hardest nut to crack. I had some re-tests though it gave me an opportunity to review and understand more the course materials. I’m back to the university to continue my graduate studies since the onset of fall this year. I also started working on one of our four practical projects as part of this training package, and at the same time writing an article right now for the IBPA newsletter publication. Before I go farther in this journey of learning, let me take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your comments on my responses to open-ended questions which greatly encouraged me to move on. Being my on-line instructor for a brief period of time as well as my honest mentor, I believe you possess the quality of a good teacher. I also wish to thank Nick Allan and other on-line instructors for responding to my questions from time to time when I suppose you’re not around. Lastly, I wish to thank KC Daya for allowing me to participate in this training program that introduced me to windows of opportunities as a newcomer to Canada. I’m glad to highlight in my resume these new qualifications I have with KRC along with my myriad of credentials - Ariel Q.
I always enjoy the articles as they tell us what is happening in the
outside world. Online session gives the theory but your articles give the
You have a good selection of articles.
Thanks for making the course so interesting. Today I have completed one
month of my registration with this course, because of you I feel I am quite
familiar and knowledgeable about clinical trial intricacies.
Thank you very much sir for your comments and additonal information. I have
not read all yet, but I will. I just had some trouble sending session four,
so I had to repeat it, I will take a short break and eat lunch and continue
this afternoon. It is a priveldge to have you as my coordinator and
instructor. More power to you. God Bless
Thank you very much for your message. I am grateful for your interest in my
future career. First of all I would like to thank you personally
and KRC for excellent CRA and QA classes. I think both courses were well
designed and presented to the students. The questions were well
thought out and encouraged follow-on learning efforts.
I would also like to mention the excellent communication skills the
instructors demonstrated which made studying so much more enjoyable.
Another course related point that impressed me was the quality of my direct
communications with the instructor - this was a very valuable
source of learning as well.
Now as for my career aspirations upon completion of the courses (I am
completing the last session of the QA course):
I started looking for job in my area (North California, San Francisco Bay
area) after completing the CRA course. I made use of sources from the
KRC provided bi-monthly jobs list as well as other internet sites for CRA. I
sent my resumes to a few (4-5) places that had openings for CRA positions
and received 2 responses so far.
Hello Anna, We've only met once at Kriger office last May, 2003, a student for data management program and would just like to thank you and the rest of Kriger teaching staffs (especially Yuri) for all the support that you guys have given me. I'm now here in US working in one of the pharmaceutical companies. Please extend my regards to Yuri.
... First, thank you for all of your help and comments regarding the answers
to the questions in the training.
The reason that I am taking this course is two-fold. First, I had applied
for a job in the bio-pharmaceutical industry and the placement company
really liked my resume (I have a background in information technology),
although they couldn't recommend me to the company until I had taken some
training. Then I thought that even if I don't get that particular job, this
training course could be helpful in being eligible for other jobs. Also
getting a job in the bio-pharmaceutical industry could prove to be more
stable than in the technology sector. I've found that industry to be very
volatile and not very secure in terms of long term employment.
In terms of my expectations regarding my future career, I'm really not
thinking that far ahead yet. I'd like to get a job combining my previous
technical experience and the information I've learned during the training.
Then I can learn about career paths that would maximize utilizations of my
Dear Head of Training Department, thanks for your collaboration. I have recieved both
documents as of yesterday and look forward to work on my assignments before
the due date.
Kindly be informed that I am a candidate for a Medical Doctor post in CHAD
with IMC which I already informed Dr Bruce, so my delay with the assignments
are mainly due to my job search. And am sure that once I got settled with
the job my preformance will be outstanding compared to now. Of-course I have
the intention in the near future also to take more courses with KRC.
I look forward being a valuable student and graduate from KRC.
Thank you very much for your answer, I really did not expect such a speed.
And thanks for your appreciations and for the temporary password. I will
definitely enter there to read and see. Anyhow, I cannot afford yet such a
course and moreover, being a newcomer I cannot afford to think to managerial
positions. Don't want to get drunk with cold water, ha, ha, ha... Of course,
in time it would be different, now I would be happy with a position in a
Data Management department after finishing our course. Anyhow, such a course
would be extremely useful for me on the long term. I will try to enroll the
I read something related to topologies during my math courses in the
University but being too young, I did not pay attention. Thought it was
usefullness phylosophy. I have a vague idea what an alef is, what a vecinity
is, what a close or open topologic space is, but I did not now how these
concepts apply to molecular spaces.
Well, thanks again. You gave me the chance to enter in a closed normalized
metric managerial 4-D space, counting the time axis too... :)
Dear Hugh, Hello. How are you? Your session article were excellent. It
provided me with a new insight, and the ability to analyze a pharmaceutical
from multiple prespectives.In the end ,I would like to add that without your
guidance,I would not have been able to get as much as I did in this course.
If you would be kind enough to provide me with a letter of recommendation,I
would be very grateful.
Thank you for the great course that you taught. It was a great
pleasure for me to a student in your course.
I graduated from medical university (China) in
1995, then became a surgeon in one of hospitals in
China too. In 1997 I became an oculist in the same
hospital. My major is glaucoma. In the year 2002 I
immigrated to USA, from that time to now I have to
do some labor job to support the life, and meanwhile
to improve the ability of English. Last month I got
the information that your school provides some very
good programs related to medicine. Through contact
with your school I found the CRA program is so good
and I think the career of CRA is fit to me, I like
this job. So I participate this program. Hopefully
after finish the program I can find a job.
Since the first day I took this program, you have
given me a lot of instruction that enlightened my
mind, thank you for your help!
Thanks so much for being such a good guide.
I am one of your students.I am currently facing
a bit of a problem because I have just secured a QA job whose is a bit far
from where I stay.It takes me 2hrs to reach there by public means.
Anyway, I am happy and thank you for your on-line program.
...I had a really good interview with the Medical Council of Canada, the
interviewer told me that he had 160 people apply, and selected 14, then 5. I
was one of the 5. I have a good feeling about it, I was interviewed for over
an hour. I was told before I left that he would contact me in the next 24
hours if I am selected for a second interview ( he has one more interview
tomorrow). What ever happens I feel great about the interview. I will keep
... Bruce, At first, I would like to thank you personally and the
whole team of KRC Inc. for the opportunity that was
given to me to get exposed to all information and
problemsoliving in the area of Clinical Research, as
well as for your prompt feedback.
I would like to excuse myself for not answering your
e-mails in a timely manner. I am enjoying a lot this
on-line training, because I can see a different point
of view on some of the problems I have already come
across being an emergency medical physician.
Unfortunately I am not sure for how long I am granted
this free access, that's why I was trying to cover as
many topics from these training programs for a short
time, not even opening my e-mail for several days.
However, after I had the chance to read your messages,
I understand that sharing my opinion and asking
questions regarding the information you are giving me
is at least as important as reading the training
sessions and answering the questions there. So from
now on I will move at a slower pace and I will respond
to all your messages. I hope to be able to answer all
of them (and I would appreciate very much if I am
gicen the chance to complete the programs in full, as
I think that Clinical Research may be one possible
opportunity for me to pusrue in my future professional
Hi Bruce, First of all I want to seize this opportunity to
really express my thanks to you for all the effort you
put in to help me succeed. Thanks for always answering
my questions with explanations despite your tight
schdule. I truely appreciate this.
I am also happy that you are providing
me with constant support in getting
employement in this area.
...Lastly, I would like to say that I really learnt a lot
by taking this course...This has opened up a whole new
world of knowledge to me and I believe it will take me
Actually, I went to see the K.R.C. inc for evaluating exam preparation but
luckily took research program with my friend who was interested in this
program. I would like to thank you for all of your coordination and help.
Really you made my first experience of on line course a live one. How
prompt and informative was your response, I really appreciate that.
Honestly speaking I never knew that research is such a challenging field,
with a lot of potential as well as full of mystery too. Any way your
thoughtfulness will always be remembered.
Yesterday I started the on-line training program with Kriger Research. I am
overwhelmed by the vast amount of information that you have provided after
the each session. You have helped me to dig deeper in material. News and
magazine articles are now jumping out at me. Working in a large law firm I
also am finding the variety of teams including health care, litigation,
patent, and benefits to be a great resource of information.
The third session's focus on the start of clinical research opened my eyes
to the advancement in technology used in the medical environment. With the
upcoming wireless tools becoming available, information will be available at
an even faster pace. Data queries would indeed allow for searching a vast
amount of data from multiple resources from a variety of locations. This
also will have a huge impact on the public's (patient's) research options.
If there are FDA opportunities for volunteering/testing or concerns the
average patient can form their own opinions with review of data. This may
allow for less government intervention and aide in lowering the cost of
drugs. Although the regulations were put in place with good intention the
path of bringing drugs to market will continue to be modified with the use
Thanks for the feedback with the first three sessions. I especially
appreciated the general knowledge clip that was included regarding how many
of the medical terms evolved from Greek mythology.

Hi, KRC,I have found the pharmacologyl studies very useful and eye-opening. I don't have life science background so this part of the text is definitely helpful for me. The sequence of the text is in right order as well....
I received the diploma from KRC. Thank you, I'm very proud and happy, this
is a special achievement for me. I received also job search methods and
strategies from KRC and I'll do all my best in order to get a job (because I
need one!). I tried to find a job where I can use all my knowledge and also
my transferable skills, but I noticed that the employers don't hire me
because I have been in Canada for only 4 month and I haven't worked in
Let me tell you a story. I had applied for a general labour packaging
position (despite the fact that I'm a quality engineer) at ABBOTT. They
needed workers, but they told me that I never worked in the pharmaceutical
industry and I am not good enough for packaging position(!) at ABBOTT.
Now I have this diploma and I will apply for a job with my new skills. If
you know some entry-level positions, please let me know, I'll accept it
because I'm new in Canada, I never worked here and I need a first job. If it
is an entry-level position, I will work to show the employer my skills and
my loyalty, and then, later, I hope I can advance to a better position.
Thank you for everything and especially thank you for your time.
Your devoted student,
Quality Assurance Program
It is good to know that somebody is in the other side. Now, let me introduce
myself: I am a Database Developer. My past experience is with relational
Databases. When I was studying the first and second sessions and talked
about Case Repost Forms and hierarchical model. I pictured myself at the
beginning of my work experience because we used data entry to get the data
in the computer and I designed data entry forms and used the mentioned
validation in order to verify the data was correct.
Sometime ago, I have thought about finding a field where I could use the
skills I have. I had thought about medical field but I couldn't figure out
how. As soon as I read the ad in the newspaper and after the first talks
with Anna I really wanted to try to become a Data Manager in Clinical Trail.
I am enjoying the articles you are sending because they are giving me a
better understanding of what clinical trials are about. Thank you very much
for sharing the articles. I'll be sending my opinion as soon as I read them.
Data Management Program
Today I have finished my final exam although I didn't get the score yet.
Anyway, I am happy and excited to have the diploma, which is a milestone for
my new career. Life is a book of learning and you grow with mistakes and
constant efforts. I always believe in learning from the mistake of mine or
others and that will take me to the door of success.
As I perhaps have missed the opportunity of the CRC position at Biovail, I
now know the mistake (resume, my information, not talking as professional
etc.). I am now better prepared!
Regarding Practical section of this course I am about to start, and look
forward to it.
I am so glad to learn that my diploma is already on the way. I appreciate it
so warmly. Your help along the course is a sort of future equipments for a
job like this. I still read and review it again and again; to keep the
information fresh and refine the knowledge I have gained with or without a
job. Thank you so much again.
Very Truly yours,
Data Management Program
Hello, Mr. Bruce,
I definitely enjoy reading the articles you send me. They are very
interesting and helpful.
Please feel free to send me any other articles and information relating to

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I need to attend ' Data management for
clinical trials ' rather than 'CRA' program. That is exactly what I am
interested also .As for my background, I have completed Master's in computer
applications and I have taken Microsoft certification as well .I have four
years of experience in the IT field. I have been here for just three months.
I am a new immigrant.
I tried to contact Kriger research, but since it's a long weekend, they
might be probably closed. Bruce, is there any way I could get information on
when the next session for ' Data management trails ' is conducted .I would
like to know if they are conducting any sessions on Monday.
Thank you once again and have a nice weekend.

I am glad that you like my submissions. Thanks for taking extra care of me.
I am very lucky to have got a teacher and mentor like you! I have carefully
read all the materials that you have sent me so far. Thank you! You have
asked whether I have any questions or not. So far, Bruce, I think I could
grasp the subject. It must be due to the fact that I am a Medical Graduate.
By the way, I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that; I
have passed my LMCC-II (results published on June 23,2003). I would rather
ask for a favour. I would very much appreciate if you could consider me, if
I am not able to submit all the materials in the 60 days time limit. I think
I am already lagging behind .I work 3-4 nights a week to provide for my
family ( a very physical job that I have, I must tell you!).I am, therefore,
not always in a position to study, and submit in time.
I once again reiterate that I consider myself lucky to have come across a
teacher and mentor like yourself. Any suggestions or advice at anytime is
Hope you are fine. The training program is getting more and more interesting
each day. I thank you for the inspiration you have given by those remarks
about my answers.

I thank-you for your offer to put in a good-word for my employment at KRC.
I will be e-mailing my resume to the fax number given.
Dear Mr. Bruce:
Thank you so much for so much details. I am indeed indebted for your help. I
have faced so far two telephone interviews (from Purdue Pharma for
internship program and from Mayo Clinic for Data Administrator). The result
from Mayo Clinic is still awaited. Now I will be sending a bit different
resume for PhD Statistician at Mayo Clinic. I think the chances for job in
USA may be less due to war.
I have sent Mr. Varma to Kriger and he went Kriger twice (and met Head of Training Department
and Irin) and he was interested to do the course and willing to pay for the
course. My brother too is looking for job in Canada (his family is in
Toronto as immigrant). He is senior Biometrician at International Centre for
Agricultural Research in Dry Areas, Syria (25 years of experience including
two years of Canadian experience). He is also interested in Biostatistics in
pharmaceutical line. He may join for on-line training. I will send him an
e-mail. One of his juniors is working as Biostatistician at Astrazeneca,
Mississauga. I am trying to send some more people to Kriger.
