Educational aim

The main educational aim of these programs is to offer a challenging, flexible scheme of study invigorated by research, which advances clinicians’ ability to develop academic and practical insights into the use of clinical trials. Clinicians will be encouraged to develop a range of transferable and subject specific expertise using their initiative and thinking out problems themselves. Specifically, the programs aim to:

  1. develop knowledge and understanding of the key decisions surrounding the design, delivery and assessment of clinical trials;
  2. encourage independent critical and evaluative skills that can be used to apply independent scientific judgment;
  3. teach clinicians how to apply the conceptual and practical tools needed to initiate clinical trials.

The learning outcomes of the programs are as follows:

  1. understand clinical trial methodology including design, delivery and assessment;
