Course Description

This 10-Week series provides an in-depth look at how oncology trials are conducted and how they differ from other clinical trials. For example, oncology can be more difficult due to the complexity of the disease and its treatments, number of prior therapies, or proper staging of the disease and other criteria for trial eligibility. Each module will address a specific oncology knowledge area to improve the clinical researcher’s knowledge. This course is for the clinical research professional who is either in oncology clinical research seeking education to improve their understanding of oncology trials or for those who would like to enter the field or who are assigned to these trials but who have little or no experience in oncology trials.

The resources required to take this on-line course are already at your fingertips - an Internet connection and a phone. After registering, you will receive an email confirmation that provides you with the Web Seminar link and audio connection information.

Prior to the start of the course, participants will receive Module 1 materials. Course materials for subsequent modules will be sent weekly prior to class. Come to class prepared to interact – you will be able to ask questions, provide feedback and participate in discussions and group work. Upon course completion, participants will be provided training certificates. In order to receive accreditation CEUs, participants are required to pass both a mid-term and final exam. Upon completion of the exams, CEU certificates will be provided.
