Returning back to my hometown, Philadelphia, I was ready for a summer long internship at ERT, a global technology and healthcare firm specializing in drug and consumer safety. I was drawn to ERT because of its dominance in its field with clients like Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer and its priority to consumer safety. As a project management intern for the summer, I was excited to learn more about business and consulting, future career fields I am interested in, and ERT’s niche industry that it occupies.
My job consists of shadowing multiple project management staff and performing designated tasks in support of clinical study set-up, monitoring, and closeout. I assist with documentation management for paper and electronic study files while performing study archiving activities. My duties also include helping with meeting preparation, including report generation and review, and provided administration support to project managers.
