Prepare for a Job in Clinical Trials Design and Management

Join us for a 90-minute informal info session about UCSC Extension’s certificate in Clinical Trials Design and Management, a program unparalleled in rigor and quality. We help professionals gain a solid and practical understanding of the entire clinical trials process—from drug and device development to monitoring—while providing you with a foundation in the scientific principles, regulations, and the ethics that are vitally important to the conduct of clinical research. This comprehensive curriculum and intense focus on best practices in the clinical trial process makes this certificate program an excellent choice for current professionals—clinical research associates and coordinators, clinical program managers and physicians, biomedical and research scientists, nurses, IRB members and administrators, and pharmacists—as well as those who are new to the field.
