Beschreibung des Angebots
The goal of this program is to impart information and skills necessary to successfully start or enhance a new career as a clinical research professional.

This continuing education program has been designed to meet the needs of young clinical research professionals from industry and academia (study nurses, study coordinators, study physicians, clinical trial/research associates, clinical monitors), as well as for new members of ethics committees. Furthermore it provides an opportunity for graduates from life sciences and medical schools to gain a comprehensive understanding of the phases of clinical research and the practical aspects of clinical trial planning and conduct.
Students who are interested in a broader training on operational aspects of clinical trials including management and leadership skills may be interested in either following the Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) in Clinical Trial Practice and Management directly or complementing their knowledge through an additional CAS in Clinical Research II (Management of Clinical Trials) after completion of the CAS in Clinical Research I.
Aufbau der Ausbildung
