  • Understand the entire clinical trials process, from the perspective of the clinical study site and the sponsor or monitor
  • Consider and maintain regulatory compliance practices and the ethical considerations of conducting clinical research
  • Initiate clinical research studies, apply monitoring methods, and write documents and reports

Classes are available both online and in-person at the Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago.
