This program is essential for anyone wishing to commence a clinical research project in their current profession, or for those looking to work in the clinical research industry. It provides participants with the fundamental knowledge of clinical research development, design and implementation.

One of the best things this program offers is access to leaders in the field of clinical research and their research projects. The integrated nature of the program draws on the expertise of our academics and researchers and affiliated research institutes and hospitals.

I really enjoy igniting people’s passion for research, and working with course participants to achieve their clinical research goals -whether that’s developing a research project from their clinical practice and experience or helping students to transition into the clinical research field from other industries. This very practical program is about preparing participants for the future clinical research workforce.
