Clinical Research Undergraduate Certificate

The Undergraduate Certificate in Clinical Research trains health professionals to contribute to the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical trials. As the link between the biomedical industry and the physician, a clinical research professional assists in the testing and evaluation of new drugs, devices, and procedures.

Students who complete the Certificate in Clinical Research will be able to demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of drug development (pre-clinical and clinical phases) and how federal regulations, especially 21 CFR (code of federal regulations), impact both phases.
  • Competence in writing a clinical trial protocol, informed consent form, and IND (investigational new drug application); competence in designing a clinical study.
  • Proficiency in working with a team toward a common goal, and utilizing best practices within an ethical and safe environment
