Hi There, Wonderful. If you have done a masters in Clinical Research.  The only option you have left now in turn of further studies is pursuing a Research program or a P.hD in lifesciences, biomedical or Pharmaceutical Sciences. As such by doing clinical research, you have completed a part in Research and doing a P.Hd would be a boost in your career. If wanted you can pursue an MBA program too.
