QUINCY — Ashley Chbeir, clinical research coordinator for Blessing Health, has earned the status of certified clinical research professional. Requirements to earn the certification include having a minimum of two years in the field and passing the Society of Clinical Research Associates examination.

SOCRA established the certification program for Clinical Research Professionals to create an internationally accepted standard of knowledge, education and experience by which clinical research professionals are recognized by the clinical research community.

Clinical research professionals are responsible for the planning, coordination and management of clinical trials and other research projects that result in products of therapeutic value for the benefit of patients. They make sure staff involved in research follow protocols and safety procedures for experiments and may also record the progress of the research and help analyze the data as it is collected.

Still University.
