The biopharmaceutical and healthcare research industries are growing at a rapid pace, yet there is a critical shortage of clinical research professionals to manage the human subjects research activities required to move new therapies through development and to patients.
The Clinical Trials Sciences certificate prepares students who have an interest in human subjects’ research regulations, study conduct, management, data coordinating and leadership with a broad foundation of knowledge and skills needed to pursue careers in clinical research.
Jobs in clinical trials study management include: clinical research assistant, clinical research coordinators, data managers, regulatory affairs officers and more.
The Clinical Trials Sciences certificate program consists of four courses with a total of 13 undergraduate credit hours, offered completely online and is designed to be able to be completed in as little as three semesters. At the completion of the program, you’ll earn an academic certificate from The Ohio State University.
Upon completion of this certificate, students will be prepared to:
- Systematically apply understanding of regulations, bioethics, design and launch of clinical trials of investigational products.
- Apply data and project management to support quality improvement and monitor clinical trials activities.
This certificate is available to Ohio State students seeking a bachelor’s degree in health-related sciences (including Chemistry and Biochemistry).
This program admits students every semester. There is an application deadline for each semester.
