Graduating Year: 2021
Education: Mathematics and Statistics Double Major, minor in Computer Science
Career: Data Standard Analyst at Medpace, Inc
What they do: I organize clinical trial data in SAS based on the specific Table, Figure or Listing being created and create the output in forms such as RTF’s, PDF’s, Excel Files, etc. I also double program (known as QC Programming) other people’s Tables, Figures and Listings using PROC Compare and other SAS functions.
Necessary job skills: SAS Programming, problem solving, code debugging, working with a team, checking for data issues electronically (double programming) and manually
Career path: At Medpace, I originally was a Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM) and Edits Programmer. I have since transitioned into a new “experimental” role that Medpace rolled out in early 2022 where I do Tables, Figures and Listings (TFLs) Programming. I did SDTM programming for roughly a year and have been doing the TFL programming for about a year now as well!
