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. This web seminar reviews the clinical trial core competencies required for the Principal Investigator in accordance with the federal regulations, ICH GCP guidelines, and industry best practices.
