Industry sponsors typically conduct an in-person or remote initiation visit with the entire study team prior to study start. In many cases the study coordinator is responsible for working with the sponsor or Clinical Research Organization (CRO) to set up this visit. The sponsor and monitor may tour the facilities during this visit including the IDS Pharmacy (log in required) for drug studies. Make sure that the appointment is scheduled (log in required) at least 5 days in advance with the IDS as they get filled very fast.
