There is a strong and growing demand for well-trained clinical research coordinators not only at Mayo Clinic, but also at academic medical centers and independent research centers around the country. Obtaining an associate degree or diploma in clinical research coordination can prepare you to pursue a professional career in clinical research.

Students in the CRC Program must be physically located in Rochester, Minn., as classroom-based courses are part of the curriculum.
