This is an intensive two-day course which provides detailed and practical guidance on the different project management skills used by study sponsors and Contract Research Organizations (CROs), so helps you decide how to apply these skills in your situation. The course is specifically designed for clinical research project management, with examples and exercises developed using pharmaceutical research scenarios. A key component of this course is that you will learn how to take control of your clinical trials, to manage and direct them, rather than simply tracking what is happening.

Attendees new to project management will receive an introduction to the project management of clinical trials, whereas those more familiar with project management will receive a boost to their knowledge and further their understanding of how sponsor and CRO companies operate.
