Clinical Evaluation Report (CER)
Writing Internship Program

What is the CER Writing Internship Program?

The GLOBAL CER Writing Internship Program is a rigorous 12-month training program designed to teach novice writers the skills and techniques required to become a CER writer at GLOBAL. During the first half of the program, interns work closely with an experienced instructor in an inquiry-based, engaging curriculum to develop competency in key areas of the CER writing process and gain an understand of related regulations and guidelines.

In the second half of the internship, interns enter a mentorship program in which they apply their training to real-life CER work under the close supervision of a lead CER writer. During this time, interns work closely with their mentor to gain additional experience on CER strategies, project management, and regulatory knowledge while continuing to produce high-quality work.

By the end of the internship program, successful interns are prepared to take ownership of their own CER projects and may be considered for a salaried writing position at GLOBAL.
 

Why we’re doing it

The GLOBAL CER Internship Program was developed to address several recurring needs.

  • Finding CER writers is hard; finding great CER writers is even harder!

  • Hands-on training for CER writing is hard to come by, especially for those new to the industry

  • Smart, talented researchers, writers, and professionals need a gateway into this field

While there are many fine CER writers out there, GLOBAL has found that training our own writers in-house is the best way to ensure we can meet the challenges of the industry and adapt to client needs. With a strong training program, GLOBAL can identify promising individuals and teach them CER-specific writing skills.
