CLRA 6100 - Introduction to Clinical Research♦


(3 sem. cr.) Students in this course are provided with an overview of the clinical research enterprise from a historical and evolutionary perspective, including examples of landmark studies and controversies. Students consider the context in which researchers design and implement human clinical studies and explore a variety of topics, including the components, general principles, and issues in clinical research; types and classification of research studies; formulation of research objectives and outcomes; definition and phases of clinical trial protocols; and the roles and responsibilities of the clinical research team and study sponsors. Students become familiar with key medical terminology, including basic concepts of health, wellness, and disease. They work toward developing critical-thinking, written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills as well as competencies needed for student success in an online environment. Students also begin work on their portfolio through assigned learning activities, including a journal of interactions and interviews with professionals in the field, an assessment of an organization’s culture, and the identification of management challenges in clinical research.
