Online: Introduction to Clinical Research

Introduction to Clinical Research Course 

I am pleased to announce that the Clinical Research Center is again offering the predominantly online course entitled “Introduction to Clinical Research.”  This course has also been approved as a Graduate School course:  CLTR 5000 Graduate Seminar in Clinical and Translational Research (3 credits).  

The on-line course will run over a period of three months, starting in mid-September 2013.  This course will provide an introduction to clinical research for students, residents, fellows and interested faculty.  Participants will be expected to view a series of 22 on-line lectures and meet with faculty approximately every four weeks to review the materials covered in the on-line lectures and develop a research proposal through a series of homework assignments.  The meetings with faculty will be held on Thursdays from 3:00-5:00 PM on the following dates:  9/12/13, 10/10/13, 11/7/13 and 12/5/13.  The meetings will be held in the Surgical Research Center Conference Room, L-1099, at UCHC.  There will also be required readings, homework assignments, peer-review protocol review, and a final exam. 

The registration fee for the course is $300.00 if you sign up through the Clinical Research Center.  Acceptable modes of payment are a personal check made payable to UCONN Health Center or a transfer voucher from the sponsoring department.  If you register via the Graduate School (PeopleSoft), the cost is based on the Graduate School’s standard fees and tuition rates.

Registration closes on Friday, August 30, 2013, with payment due by Friday, September 6, 2013.  

If you are interested in applying, please send a copy of your CV and letter of intent to Ms. Lisa Godin at Godin@nso.uchc.edu.  If you have any questions, please call 860 679-4145.
