Beschreibung des Angebots
Successful clinical research requires clinical experience, but also extensive knowledge about all phases of the clinical research process, awareness of regulatory requirements as well as project management and leadership skills. The complex and highly competitive nature of clinical research causes a growing need for well-trained clinical research professionals, especially those working as study coordinators, study managers, clinical monitors or clinical research assistants.
Clinical research professionals usually start their careers with background knowledge from diverse graduate trainings and lack structured training in clinical research. Still, often they are facing highly demanding responsibilities in a complex, ever-evolving, interdisciplinary and often multinational environment. Therefore, training at the postgraduate level is being more and more recognized as essential for developing scientific, technical and interpersonal competences as outlined below.
The goal of this program is to prepare trainees for the variety of management and leadership roles in different clinical research settings such as academia, pharmaceutical, medical device or biotech industry, clinical research organizations and regulatory agencies.
Aufbau der Ausbildung
This 2-year program consists of 9 face-to-face teaching modules (all 3 days in length except for the final module, which is 2 days). Each module comprises of lectures, practical exercises, group discussions and self-directed learnin. Acquired competencies will be checked by multiple-choice tests and homework assignments.
To gain insights into practical aspects of the daily work life in a clinical research profession, two one-week internships (work-shadowings) at a host site involved in a new field of clinical research have to be completed. The work-shadowing has to be organized individually.
Please note that modules 1 - 4 and work-shadowing I are identical to the curriculum of the program Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Clinical Research I while modules 5 - 9 and work-shadowing II are identical to the curriculum of the program CAS in Clinical Research II.
Towards the end of the program, students will be required to formulate a diploma thesis related to their personal work environment or special interest within the scope of clinical research. A final oral examination will be conducted by members from the teaching faculty for each individual student.
Successful completion of this DAS program will be awarded with 30 ECTS credit points and the accredited university title “Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) in Clinical Trial Practice and Management”.
People working in any area of clinical research either in academia or in industry (study nurses, study coordinators, clinical research associates, study physicians, assistant physicians, etc.)
