Full course description


Clinical trial managers are now working closely with other groups within a clinical trial to ensure that data is collected, managed, and reported in a timely manner, accurately, and securely. Therefore the clinical trial manager must understand good clinical practices, protocol, protocol deviations, metadata, basic SDTM mapping, programming, and Excel. Therefore building the skills of clinical trial managers is essential.
