DM Associate Program

The DAP initiative began with a deep desire to bring in new ways of thinking to our continued innovation. Through the program, college seniors and recent graduates will be exposed to a number of teams and departments within our organization. DAP Associates will experience a program that will allow them to grow as both a research professional and a leader.
DAP Associates will be chosen from a pool of applicants based on their application, interview, and ambition! From there, they will partake in rotations which are specifically tailored to match their interests and career goals. In addition, DAP Associates will also partake in one-on- one coaching with some of the most senior leaders in our company. Our team is focused on developing future clinical research professionals and leaders.

Up to 15 Associates will be hired nationally each year for our sites in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and Houston.
