Vigor Consulting Solutions

It is your competitive advantage that counts

What Clients Are Saying About Vigor

Alethea Wieland, PresidentOwen Garrick, M.D.Vieta Bland, MD
"Carolyn is a clinical research training and mentoring expert who creates psychological safety in life science team environments for C-suite executives and clinical research associates alike. Her approach is of genuine caring and empathy to produce the highest quality performance in individuals and multi-disciplinary teams. Her breadth of knowledge ranges from writing SOPs, to training new staff, to implementing new policies and procedures, and to identifying areas of individual or team improvement. She does this with a flare of inspiring people to grow and learn new things, and to be a part of a higher purpose. I highly endorse Carolyn and her company to place talent, improve resourcing training and performance, communicate best practices in clinical research, and to create efficiencies in any CRO or life science / sponsor company. She is a real gem."

Clinical Research Strategies
To prepare one of BCR’s research sites for an upcoming site visit by one of our major Clients, our team needed professional support to provide GCP training. I received an industry KOL recommendation to contact Vigor, a training and clinical trial resource placement ‘dynamo’. Vigor provided expert GCP training to the site’s Coordinators, PI, Sub-I’s, and support staff. In addition, Vigor provided additional insight to their recently hired RNs, who were new to the Coordinator role. Organizationally, Vigor assessed the site’s infrastructure, and proposed solutions to improve their research operations. Thanks to Vigor support, BCR was awarded the study. Having Vigor there to consult and train us greatly influenced our success.

“I conduct several clinical trials through my medical practice and enjoy being a part of drug development. Early in my site's clinical research history, study awards were infrequent, and our research staff turn-over was recurrent. Fortunately, I was contacted by Carolyn Stroud, to explore clinical research training needs and quality enhancement solutions. As a certified clinical research professional and experienced trainer, Ms. Stroud educated my study coordinators and sub-investigator on GCP-ICH regulations, clinical research practices, and reinforced our infrastructure. Believe it or not, I have maintained the same study staff for over 12 years! Carolyn, thank you for your expert training and guidance”.
