Clinical Project Management for Small and Medium Sized Pharma Companies
In the complex environment of today’s clinical studies, with about 40% of studies failing to perform as expected, the need of skilled clinical project managers keeps increasing.
We designed this course for junior clinical project managers in small and medium sized pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to navigate them through the science of project management, equip them with knowledge and tools to manage studies successfully, point out common misconceptions and pitfalls to avoid, and get them ready to fulfil their company goals in regulatory-compliant study execution.
Starting with general project management principles and terms, we apply them on clinical studies, focus on thorough project planning, share ways and tools for a strong project control, define how to close the project properly, and take lessons learned for future projects.
This 4-half-day course is practical and interactive with opportunities to get engaged in workshops, discussions, sharing of experience, and networking.
