Become a Clinical Trial Investigator in Africa
According to the Good Clinical Practice ("Bonnes Pratiques Cliniques"):
"4.1.1. The investigator is a physician fulfilling the conditions of practice of medicine and having the appropriate competence to assume the obligations conferred on it by the legislative provisions and regulations in force and by this Annex. The conditions of practice of medicine are provided for in Article L. 4111-1 of the Public Health Code. It provides the sponsor with a current curriculum vitae, dated and signed, to evaluate his ability to direct and monitor research. The application for opinion at the CPP mentioned in Article R. 1123-20 of the Public Health Code, includes this information."
Clinical trial investigators play an important role in the development of products to treat disease patients, and improve the health of people in Africa. The large volume of new drugs, therapies and devices under development has dramatically increased the number of clinical trials required to properly evaluate them.

Role in the Evolution of Medicine. Clinical trial investigators can potentially bring breakthrough products to the market that could impact the health of people in Africa.
