Are you interested in conducting your own clinical research? Need a refresher on the nuts and bolts of clinical trials?

This program consists of six modules designed to train new investigators in clinical research, good clinical practice, and federal and local regulatory practices. The program is tailored to meet the needs of new investigators who may have previously served on a study team, but who have not yet been a PI on an industry-sponsored study or initiated their own study.

This program is also a good refresher for experienced PIs. Topics covered include regulatory processes, stakeholder and community engagement, participant recruitment, adverse event reporting, audit readiness, and study close-out. The curriculum is based on the Tufts CTSI Blue Star Investigator Certificate Program and has been adapted for MaineHealth Investigators.

This course consists of six modules. Each module is approximately 20 - 30 minutes long and includes an evaluation. Modules may be completed in any order.
