Clinical Trials 101 virtual workshop series

“Both sessions were very informative and interactive. The topics covered everything I needed and even more. Very happy with the workshops overall.”
– Angie Roldan, Alfred Health
“Great course and charismatic speakers.”
– Lauren Patten, Alfred Health

Knowledge can fade over time, meaning most of us must occasionally revisit and review important concepts. Refresher training helps keep key knowledge up to date.

That’s why we developed a 2 part workshop series that cover the fundamentals of clinical trials.

Clinical Trials 101 covers several key topics into two sessions to provide you with the fundamental knowledge to work in the sector. 

This interactive workshop series aims to strengthen your understanding of clinical trials. This includes all the steps to plan, conduct and evaluate trials and meet regulatory requirements.

Clinical Trial Coordinators, Research Managers, Researchers, HREC Officers, Project Officers, and those new to clinical trials – we have seen a diverse range of research professionals enrol into this workshop series. No matter your experience, you’ll benefit from Clinical Trials 101. 

Part 1 and 2 are stand alone and priced separately. You can choose to do just one, or both as a complete set.

You can claim 3 CPD points from each workshop.
