    Covance’s early clinical business is unique in the industry because it includes an extremely diverse and challenging set of studies (typical phase I healthy volunteer studies through Phase II proof of concept).


    Our medical writing team is exposed to a variety of study designs, endpoints, molecules, and clients. We offer the opportunity to develop clinical pharmacology skills that most other medical writing employers do not offer.
