CAS Clinical Research I (Clinical Trial Planning and Conduct)
|Basel, North West Switzerland, Switzerland
The goal of this program is to impart information and skills necessary to successfully start or enhance a new career as a clinical research professional. The program provides a profound background on the development of new therapies with a focus on drug development, covers key ethical aspects of conducting research involving human participants, teaches the regulatory and legal requirements of performing clinical studies and finally thoroughly explains the planning and performance competences of conducting clinical trials.
This continuing education program has been designed to meet the needs of young clinical research professionals from industry and academia (study nurses, study coordinators, study physicians, clinical trial/research associates, clinical monitors), as well as for new members of ethics committees. Furthermore, it provides an opportunity for graduates from life sciences and medical schools to gain a comprehensive understanding of the phases of clinical research and the practical aspects of clinical trial planning and conduct.
Students who are interested in a broader training on operational aspects of clinical trials including management and leadership skills may be interested in complementing their knowledge through an additional CAS Clinical Research II (Advanced Clinical Trial Management). After successful completion of both the CAS Clinical Research I and the CAS Clinical Research II, it is possible to receive the Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) Clinical Trial Practice and Management by composition of a diploma thesis and passing a final oral examination.
This program consists of 3 modules. Each module comprises an online training for self-study and individual completion and a classroom training (2-3 days with practical exercises and group discussions).
Acquired competencies will be checked by multiple-choice tests and homework assignments. To gain insights into the daily work life in a clinical research profession, a one-week internship (work-shadowing) at a host site within the field of clinical research has to be completed. The host’s main field of activity should be different from the student’s main expertise. It is the responsibility of the student to find a suitable host for the internship.
People working in any area of clinical research either in academia or in industry (study nurses, study coordinators, clinical research associates, study physicians, assistant physicians, etc.)
This program has been specifically developed for
Candidates without a university degree but with a professional qualification ("abgeschlossene Berufsausbildung" or similar) and at least two years of practical work experience in clinical research (based on "sur-dossier" decisions)
The multidisciplinary teaching faculty consists of national and international experts in clinical research ethics, regulatory sciences and the different fields of operational clinical research.
