Project Management Fundamentals for Research and Clinical Trials
*Updated and Expanded!
Clinical Trials and research involving humans more generally, can be considered some of the most complex projects to manage. They are bound by factors such as time, resources, and quality and make important contributions to the health and wellbeing of populations, communities, and individuals.

You will walk away with a renewed sense of confidence and a tool kit of resources to help get you started – or to build on current systems and processes.
At the completion of this session, you will be able to:
