Hi. I read an article once about pharmacists who go into clinical research, and I'm definitely interested, especially if it's a nondispensing position and I'm also involved in the design/analysis of the trials. I'm wondering, do such positions actually exist? I talked to a guy who works for GSK I think who said they do exist, but I've never hear of anyone working in such a setting. Anyone know of any pharmacists working in clinical research? Also, how bad is the pay difference between such a position and a retail/hospital setting? I would imagine a clinical research pharmacist would be paid less, but hopefully not too much less. Also I've never heard of internships in the field, though I'm pretty sure there are rotations. Any way I can decide if this is the right career path for me before rotations? I was basically 99% sure I wanted to do this until I took a clinical trials class last semester, and to be honest it seems like there's a bit too much paperwork involved. So it would be nice to get some practical experience before I do a rotation. For the record, I'm right now pursuing a PharmD with a statistics minor.
