Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) Basic Training

Course Overview

The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) Basic Training Course is a one-day intensive program designed to meet the needs of coordinators who have less than one year of experience or who have never received formal training. Covering fundamental aspects of running trials, practice standards and regulation, the program is geared toward getting participants ‘up and running’ in the clinic.

Course Highlights

Across five intensive sessions the focus is on providing a thorough grounding in the basics of conducting clinical studies, primarily through the delivery of key practical knowledge and access to real-world tools and templates that can be used in study implementation. There is also a cogent review of relevant quality standards (i.e. Good Clinical Practice (GCP)) and the necessary regulatory requirements that determine good governance and oversight of trials, and which contribute to study success.

  • Ethics Committee submissions
  • Clinical trial initiation and budget negotiation
