BootCamp – Clinical Research Management Course

Successful conduct of clinical research depends on the research team’s ability to navigate the many complexities of local and federal regulations, site logistics and clinical operations. Developing a sound understanding of these issues and acquiring the ability to accurately fulfill all responsibilities is essential. It can be difficult for study teams to obtain correct and complete information and training they need to accomplish the above. Therefore, the CTSI Academy and the Clinical Trials Office (CTO) are now offering a revised BootCamp training program. This program has a strong focus on the practical conduct of clinical research at MCW and its partner institutions.

The goal of this program is to provide new research staff (both coordinators and PIs) with important information on the research environment at MCW and its partners while sharing tips and tools for the safe, efficient, ethical, and compliant conduct of research. This program is made possible by contributions from experts at the MCW Office of Research, MCW and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin IRBs, the departments of medicine and pediatrics, the Cancer Center CTO and the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center Research Office.
