CCEB's Clinical Research Services: Summer Clinical Research Methods CoursesJUNE 30, 2008
The CCEB serves as an interdisciplinary resource for clinical research throughout the School of Medicine and offers a range of services, primarily to faculty, residents, fellows, and research staff within the University of Pennsylvania Health System, but also to clinicians and scientists throughout the Delaware Valley with interests in such services. These services are identified and described as a regular feature of this newsletter.
A series of clinical research methods courses are available this summer for clinical research project managers, residents, fellows, and faculty without clinical research training who are interested in careers in collaborative and research support roles. These classes are intensive short courses, taught for two hours each day (Monday through Friday only) for two weeks. Two sessions are being offered this year. The first session begins on Monday, July 14 and ends on Friday, July 18. The second session runs from Monday, July 21 through Friday, August 1.
These classes include an introductory course in epidemiology, an introductory course in biostatistics, a database management course, a course in clinical trials and translational research, and an economic evaluation course.
