Renee, Don't think my advice would be earth-shattering, but it is very practical. Apply for a job at Quintiles or another CRO. We are always looking for SWANs (people that are Smart, Work hard, are Analytical and are Nice). Those types of people with a medical background and a touch of curiousity are good fits with the CRA or CTA roles. Happy to have one of my recruiters chat.
