Program Overview

Become a well-rounded clinical research specialist

Develop both the general and specialized skillsets needed to work in clinical research. In your first semester, you'll learn fundamentals of clinical trials, research methods, project management, regulations, quality and compliance, good practices and more. You'll then build on that knowledge with training in oncology, immunology, cardiology, neurology, medical devices and diagnostics.

Online learning that simulates in-person experiences

Study in the comfort of your own home while still getting hands-on experience. This program is delivered remotely, preparing you for an industry that conducts most of its work online. Video lectures are supported by virtual reality (VR) labs that simulate a real-world consenting room, enabling you to interact with patients and doctors. All costs of your VR equipment will be covered in your fees.

Join a growing field and get paid during your placement

The use of evidence-based medicine is growing globally, prompting governments to invest more money in research and development. The high demand for clinical research associates enables you to be paid during a 360-hour in-person placement at the end of your program. We'll help you secure your co-op at a clinical research organization, hospital, research institution or office in your area.

Upgrade your existing skillset

Government oversight of clinical trials has increased and any violation of research regulations can be extremely damaging to a company's reputation. Even if you're already working in this field, upgrading your knowledge and skills could make you more attractive to employers. You can also apply to receive credit for previous workplace experience or learning, giving you a head start towards your new credential.
