Ramzi El Fakhri, MBA, CRA, has become the first employee within Mass General and Partners HealthCare to successfully pass the Certified Financial Research Administrator (CFRA) exam. There are only 82 CFRAs in the US including six in Massachusetts.

The CFRA recognizes an individual’s experience and knowledge in financial research administration and credibility when dealing with sponsors and offices of sponsored research. The requirements for the designation are a bachelor’s degree, three years of professional experience in research administration and successful completion of a national, written exam organized by the Research Administrators Certification Council (RACC).

Ramzi manages the PET Core facility and a wide portfolio of grants at the Gordon Center for Medical Imaging, where he has worked for the past three years.
