The Foundations of Clinical Research (FCR) program is rooted in the belief that clinical research training is critical to professional development in health care. Clinical research training not only creates potential independent investigators but also enables clinicians to advance their careers through a greater understanding of research evidence.
Designed to provide learners with the foundational knowledge and skill sets required to produce high-quality clinical research, our program will lay the fundamental groundwork in epidemiology and biostatistics required for a multifaceted career in clinical research.
The overarching goal of the Foundations of Clinical Research program is to equip the next generation of researchers with the skill sets essential to evaluating evidence, understanding biostatistics, and beginning their clinical research careers. Our aim is to ensure that learners develop a strong foundation in the design, implementation, analysis and interpretation of clinical research studies.
