Anyone looking for a comprehensive overview of clinical research whether new to the field or currently working in a related profession. [e.g. Academic Researchers wanting to move into clinical research; CTAs or CRAs; those returning from a career break; clinical trial supplies; drug safety etc.] It covers a wide range of topics and is designed for those who need to understand the detail of clinical trials. We also run a one day course Clinical Research for Non Clinical Researchers [F9,F32 & F32] for individuals looking for a less detailed option.


An Introduction to Clinical Trials and Clinical Trial Practice, the ICR’s flagship training course, is accredited by Cranfield University. This highly practical course explores the relevance of clinical research in drug development and summarises the ethical and regulatory requirements for clinical trials. It covers clinical trial methodology and summarises the principles of Good Clinical Practice.

The course gives an overview of the various aspects of clinical research and will be of interest to all members of the clinical study team. It uses a combination of lectures, tutorials and group workshops. Delegates receive a comprehensive workbook and a copy of ICH GCP guidelines. The content of the course will equip delegates to sit the ICR Certificate examination.
