Training- Skills Training

In compiling this list, we have focused on training activities that are mainly or exclusively about clinical trials. We recognise that many other courses might also be useful to people involved in clinical trials (for example, systematic reviews, time management, statistical or economic analysis, and qualitative research methodology) but this list is not comprehensive.

We also include links to external partners' resources where more courses of similar focus can be found.

Please contact us if you would like to request a course relevant to clinical trials methodology to be added to this list. To receive our fortnightly newsletter including publications, events, training and more send us an email.
