What is it like to be an Assistant Project Manager at MAC?
The Assistant Project Manager provides support to the Project Management team in the setup, coordination and execution of clinical trials at MAC. This position supports multiple Project Managers in the simultaneous delivery of a range of clinical trials across our research sites.
As Assistant Project Manager, you are involved in the full project lifecycle from study award, execution and project close out. The role also involves input into ethics submissions, vendor setup, protocol review, project status updates, internal and external team meetings, and change control, during the lifecycle of the project. The Assistant Project Manager attends Pre-Study Selection Visits, Site Initiation Visits and client meetings.
As MAC runs clinical trials across multiple sites, the Project Management team ensure that every trial is conducted under ICH GCP and follows internal MAC SOPs, to promote consistency across multi-site teams. The Assistant Project Manager is responsible for assisting the Project Manager in communicating study information across multidisciplinary study teams, including Principal Investigators, Sub Investigators, Site Directors, Study Coordinators and vendors.
On a typical day you may be involved in attending a client meeting, drafting meeting minutes, reviewing study documents, communicating study timelines to the study teams and discussing patient recruitment strategies with the Recruitment Team. Each day is different as there are a wide variety of tasks and deliverables on every study.
