Course Description

The roles and responsibilities of the Principal Investigator (PI) are essential for quality data and regulatory compliant clinical trials, but the PI remains an under-trained position in the industry. Because of the critical role the PI plays during a clinical trial, there is debate within the industry of mandatory certification for the PI and/or site accreditation. Documentation of industry training is essential.
