Learn how to get the most out of Tufts MC’s CTMS.

Join Tufts Medical Center and Tufts CTSI Professional Education on Zoom on December 15th for the next Clinical Research Staff Quarterly Training session. This quarter’s session is all about how research staff can use the Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS) to its full potential. The CTMS serves as a central data source for managing clinical studies at Tufts Medical Center (Tufts MC). Using the system is a requirement at Tufts MC and it’s designed to address the needs of research staff for activating new clinical studies, tracking clinical progress, and managing financials.

You’ll get a brief overview of the CTMS, then take a deeper look from four different perspectives: clinical research billing review, Research Administration, Research IT, and clinical research coordinator workflow. Learn from your peers in breakout rooms to see live demonstrations of the CTMS in action for different study activities. This is a great opportunity for advanced CTMS users to share their own tips and tricks with their peers, and for newer users to learn how other departments are using the CTMS. Come prepared to discuss your experience with the CTMS in breakout rooms.

This training will be held online via Zoom.
