Fundamentals of Clinical Investigation - 2013
The Fundamentals of Clinical Investigation course is held every July for 15 evenings, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. (some evenings the start time is 5 p.m.). The objective of the course is to train physicians and other health care workers to interpret the clinical experimental literature. You do not have to be a student in the Clinical Scientist Training Program to take this course. It is accredited by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences for 3 credit hours. There will be an exam at the end of the course, and it will be graded if you want to take the course for graduate school credit. There is no charge for this course.
The course will next be held July 7 - 31, 2014
Participants will be assigned to groups, each of which will critique a research article of its choice and present this critique to the class on July 25. This activity is optional for the audit students, but highly recommended.
Completion of the module on Ethical Conduct in Clinical Research fulfills the National Institutes of Health/ADAMHA requirement for instruction in the ethical conduct of research. The module may be attended without taking the whole course. You must attend all eight sessions in order to receive a certificate of completion of this module.
