CLINICAL RESEARCH PROFESSIONALS COURSE – BECOME CRA, CTA OR CRC EXPERT

This course is designed for pharmacists, physicians, dentists, veterinarians, certified nurses, dietitians, physiotherapists and Life Science graduates who wish to pursue careers in the dynamic world of clinical research. By using numerous practical exercises, the course teaches hands on practical skills in the day-to-day work of a CRA, CTA and CRC.

BIOSTATISTICS WORKSHOP; INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS, DATA ANALYSIS AND STATISTICS WITHIN PUBLICATION

The statistical sections, either in a study protocol or in a manuscript are always found to be vague and frightening. Readers often choose to skip this part and go right to the bottom line. The few brave ones find it mysterious. The reason: mostly from lack of some knowledge.

This course is intended for investigators involved in protocols development, physicians that read medical manuscripts, R&D and clinical employees at pharmaceutical, medical device, biotech or healthcare companies. This course demonstrates the role of the statistics in clinical research using a user-friendly approach, from basics to advanced statistics. We share examples of basic statistical terms from a real study to provide useful and relevant tools to handle and even enjoy reading common statistical reports that you have already read or will in the future.

At the end of the course, attendees receive the GCP Academy certificate of attendance. The GCP Academy also offers customized courses for companies or medical centers.
