Clinical Research Coordinator 101

Research coordinator training is now available online through CITI and free for all UK faculty, staff and students.  The course provides a foundational training specifically focused on operational and regulatory elements necessary for the ethical conduct of clinical research.  While this course is not mandatory, it is recommended for clinical research coordinators, clinical research associates, and staff members who function in these capacities. 

CITI Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) Course (ONLINE)

The addition of the course to the UK CITI subscription was made possible by support from the UK Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS). We hope you will take advantage of this new training opportunity.

CCTS/ORI Clinical Research Coordinator 101 (CLASSROOM TRAINING)

  • The CCTS still plans to offer our in-person classroom training “Clinical Research Coordinator 101” twice annually, but the online course will fill the gap in between offerings.
  • The dates for C101 have not yet been set for 2016.
  • The online CITI CRC course will become a prerequisite to enrolling in the classroom training. 

This classroom-based training is designed for clinical research coordinators, clinical research associates, and staff members who function in these capacities. The multi-session series provides basic information on coordinating clinical trials appropriate for entry-level positions or those new to the field. The course is offered in the spring and fall; it does not currently provide continuing education credit.
