Students must complete all five courses (15 Units) in order to qualify for the Certificate in Applied Clinical Research.
Students are given a three-year period to complete all required components of the certificate program. This requirement is based on the need to remain current with legal, regulatory and ethical considerations in the field of work.
Each course will bridge theory and practical experience through a combination of experiential learning (i.e. case studies, discussions, and presentations) and traditional teaching methods. There will be considerable emphasis on the application of content in each course to ensure students are well prepared for employment in this field. In addition, students will complete a capstone project placement as the final course in the program, which provides a concentrated opportunity to apply the clinical research methods, techniques and strategies to industry situation/case. Emerging trends, theories and practices will be incorporated into coursework to ensure that program content is current and relevant.
