Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research Practice

General

Program Description

The George Washington University’s online graduate certificate in Clinical Research Practice quickly prepares you for evidence-based practice in the role of a Principal or co-investigator (Co-I or Co-PI) in clinical research. There are six online courses (18 credits) that can be applied toward the Master of Science in Health Sciences (MSHS) in Clinical and Translational Research at a later date.

In earning the certificate, you learn how the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the Data Safety and Monitoring Board, protocol development, implementations, standard operating procedures, guidelines, regulations, and ethical considerations inform clinical research practice so you can collaborate with sponsored research programs.

In as little as 1 year, students complete 18 credit hours and learn to:

  • Oversee clinical research at the study site level,
  • Ensure compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP),
  • Use biostats and epidemiology to inform clinical practice in a research study site,
  • Improve the practice's potential for serving as a clinical study site.
