A Day in the Life of a Clinical Project Manager for Scout Clinical

Apr 23, 2020

My day typically starts around 5:30 am. I am usually the first one up in my family and use this time to pray and get myself ready for work. Once I am done, I make tea for myself and my husband and wake him up. The kids are just waking up by the time I am done with tea, and we spend the next few minutes talking about what they dreamt about, and about their plans for school that day. Once I am at work, I start by going through my emails to make sure that nothing urgent has come up while I was away. I answer emails, go through my to-do-list, and attend conference calls with our clients, both in Europe and Canada, as well as in the US. The best part of my job is knowing how great our team is, and how we can all depend upon each other. I love that we can make such a huge difference to our patients’ lives and take a huge load of stress off their shoulders by providing them with the best service that we can. There are days when last-minute requests come in, as they do in any other job, but if you have focus and determination, it is not insurmountable. Make a list and break down what you need to do to get your task done, and you will be able to do it! I leave work ready to be submerged in the stories my kids will tell me as soon as I walk through the door and look forward to doing it all again tomorrow. I love what I do and wouldn’t have it any other way.
