Clinical Research Apprenticeship

When Sarah Peterman, with PPD talent acquisition, first learned of PPD’s increased focus on military and veteran hiring she was thrilled.

“As a military spouse I am proud to be a part of a company that recognizes and emphasizes the value of military experience," she says. "I immediately wanted to be involved!”

Sarah’s passion was a perfect match for PPD’s clinical research apprenticeship program. This program is the first registered apprenticeship for clinical research associates (CRAs) in the U.S. It is designed for military and veteran candidates, who bring leadership, organizational and communication skills gained in the military.

PPD offers industry-leading learning and development opportunities, and an attractive, flexible benefits package. To explore our global career opportunities, please visit To hear from other veterans working at PPD, explore our veterans and military families page
