Course Description

To address the nation’s challenges in research, the NIH developed a series of initiatives, collectively known as the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research. As part of these initiatives, CERID developed the Clinical Research Course to review the process of Clinical and Translational Research from generation of the research idea to publication of the study manuscript.

This course has two primary aims:

  1. For participants to acquire the skills necessary to critically evaluate the medical literature. Learning how to perform a critical evaluation of published clinical studies will help physicians, nurses, or other practitioners to use the best clinical evidence when making decisions about patient care.​

  2. For participants to acquire the skills necessary to develop and implement clinical studies. Learning the process of clinical research from generation of a research idea to publication of a study manuscript will help clinical investigators, research associates, or other health care workers interested in a career in the field of clinical research.
