Clinical Trial Competencies for Public Health and Medical Research (with assessment)


Knowledge of the fundamentals of clinical trials has become essential for anyone working in clinical research. Guidelines and frameworks underpin the day to day running of trials, as well as providing clinical trial staff with the practical knowledge necessary for performing their roles.

This short course will consist of an interactive online component (24 hours) introducing clinical trial competencies, followed by an advanced masterclass (3 days) composed of formal lectures, small group discussions and workshops. The course has been designed around the key competencies for clinical trialists (based on the frameworks incorporated by the NHMRC and developed by the US-based Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative). This course is underpinned by the International Conference on Harmonisation Good Clinical Practice (ICH GCP) guidelines making it ideal for both local and international participants.

Those who undertake the 6-week formal assessment component will attain credit points equivalent to a 6-credit point unit into any of the following courses and units Master of Public Health – M6024, Master of Clinical Research Methods – M6028, Master of Health Services Management – M6008, Master of Occupational and Environment Health – M6026, Master of Biostatistics – M6025


The online component for this course will be available from 9 March 2020 – 7 June 2020.
Face to face session will run 22 – 24 April 2020
