Clinical Investigation: Certificate
from the Bulletin
Clinical investigation is the fastest growing discipline in the burgeoning medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Keeping pace with the ever-increasing body of knowledge and new regulatory procedures generated by advances in clinical research is critical to career success. The Boston University “Live” Graduate Certificate in Clinical Investigation—designed and offered by the Boston University School of Medicine—is an opportunity for clinical researchers, health professionals, and those interested in clinical research to gain a critical understanding of the scientific fundamentals of human research. Courses in the curriculum provide an in-depth look at a number of the key elements in clinical investigation, including: trial design and conduct, clinical research regulations, good clinical practices of research, and the critical evaluation of clinical research in the medical literature. Students in the live graduate certificate program will take courses on the Medical Campus with students who are in the master’s degree program in Clinical Investigation.
