I am looking to transition into the biopharm career path, I have an entry level opportunity to be a CRA (clinical research associate). As a clinical pharmacist I am making around six figures, how much does a CRA make and is it worth it for me to take this career pivot?

Salary may depend on whether you work for a Sponsor or CRO, and your local cost of living. Entry level CRA would likely mean a steep paycut, but long-term earning potential would improve. I’ve seen Sr. CRAs make well over $100k, depending on years of experience and indication experience (eg, Bay Area-based with Oncology experience). It could be a worthwhile opportunity to get into the field. Check out the “r/clinicalresearch” subreddit, there’s an anonymous survey for salaries if that’s the main deciding factor for you. But also consider if the lifestyle is a good fit - traveling CRAs spend a lot of time on the road, and that comes with its own set of challenges and often contributes to burnout.
