Are you a clinical research professional interested in opportunities for additional training and professional development?

SCTR is excited to announce our new collaboration with the Boston Medical College/Boston University Medical Campus, the University of Vermont, and the University of Florida for a series of peer-led, interactive workshops called the Research Professionals Network (RPN).

These workshops are led by colleagues from the different sites and focus on topics relevant to clinical research professionals, such as budgeting, time management, communications, and SOP development. Click here to see a full list of past workshop topics and view slides and videos.

Workshops meet monthly (September-June) on Zoom and are open to all MUSC personnel and our partners at SCSU and Clemson. These collaborative workshops can be fundamental or advanced so research staff at any level are encouraged to attend!

We know that everyone is busy, so carving out 75-90 minutes for yet another Zoom meeting may seem impossible – but here are some reasons why we think that you may be interested in the RPN workshops:

  • They provide opportunities for additional training in areas of interest for research personnel

  • There is no charge to attend

  • Participants can learn processes, share best practices, and get advice from other research staff

  • The interactive sessions serve as a forum to meet and network with colleagues from other institutions

  • You can enhance your career development by serving as a presenter – all presenters are CRPs (of any level!) from the participating institutions

And finally…

  • Attendees can receive continuing education credits towards ACRP and SoCRA certification maintenance

New workshops begin this month!
