A collaborative approach to creating a better clinical research model
Complex problems call for innovative solutions. And few challenges are bigger or more important than those facing our health care system, particularly when it comes to improving our ability to care for patients.
Wake Forest’s MS in Clinical Research Management, offered through Wake Forest School of Medicine, was created for precisely this reason. We developed our curriculum with input from leading industry partners with a goal of identifying the most pressing issues in the field and addressing how we can work collaboratively to solve them.
By completing this program, you can enhance your understanding of:
- The drug and medical device development process
- Clinical trial conduct and monitoring
- The cross-functional roles of quality assurance, statistical analysis, data management and regulatory affairs
- The business, ethical and legal perspectives of the clinical research industry
