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 results in a growing need for well-trained clinical research professionals, not least 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 often lacking structured training in clinical research. Still, they are facing highly demanding responsibilities in a complex, ever-evolving, interdisciplinary and often multinational environment. Fortunately, training at the postgraduate level is increasingly being recognized as essential to developing scientific, technical and interpersonal competences to ultimately enhance the quality of clinical research.
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 organisations and regulatory agencies.
Aufbau der Ausbildung
This 2-year program consists of the two postgraduate educational programs CAS Clinical Research I (or equivalent training) and CAS Clinical Research II plus a diploma thesis and an oral exam.
The CAS Clinical Research I and II programs comprise a total of 7 teaching modules. Teaching modules consist of online courses for self-study and individual completion and classroom training sessions (2-3 days with practical exercises and group discussions). Acquired competencies will be checked by multiple-choice tests and homework assignments.
To gain insights into the daily work life in a clinical research profession, two one-week internships (work-shadowings) at a host site within the field of clinical research have to be completed. The host’s main field of activity should be different from the student’s main expertise. It is the responsibility of the student to find a suitable host for the internship.
After completion of the CAS Clinical Research I and II programs, students are 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 experts within clinical research for each individual student.
Successful completion of this DAS program will be awarded with 31 ECTS credit points and the accredited university title “Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) 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.) People holding a science degree (minimum Bachelor's) or medical students with an interest in pursuing continuing education in clinical research practices. Individuals holding a degree equivalent to CAS Clinical Research I or II should please contact the Directors of Studies for a personal consulting.
To register for the Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) Clinical Trial Practice and Management program, interested candidates should first register for the CAS Clinical Research I or CAS Study Nurse/Coordinator program. Admission to the DAS program will be granted after successful completion of the CAS Clinical Research I program / CAS Study Nurse/Coordinator( (or equivalent) plus the CAS Clinical Research II program.
