Research Coordinator Training Program (RCTP)

This workshop will provide research staff (study coordinators, billing staff, regulatory coordinators, etc.) with the basics of implementing and managing a clinical trial with emphasis on good clinical practices (GCPs), research compliance, and other key topics. The RCTP is provided on the UAB campus twice a year (Spring and Fall) as well as via the web. 

Our six-session course will be held on consecutive Tuesdays, April 1 – May 6, 2014. All classes will be held in the Children's Harbor Bradley Conference Center in Birmingham, AL. The cost is $125 and payable with registration. Enrollment is limited, so register early. CEUs will be offered and attendance at all six sessions will meet initial IRB training requirements. Please remember to bring your nursing license to each session to receive CEUs.
