Want to Become a Clinical Research Professional?
The Clinical Research, Drug Safety and Pharmacovigilance Post-Graduate Diploma Program is designed to develop the specialized knowledge and skills required to design and manage clinical studies across multiple phases of drug development by preparing regulatory documents, writing study protocols, monitoring and assuring the quality, managing and analysing the clinical study data and, and conducting drug safety and pharmacovigilance activities. The hands-on training students receive in the program equips them with technical and medical writing skills (Study Protocols and Reports, ICF, SOPs) and applied pharmacovigilance methods (recording of Adverse Events, writing expedited Adverse Drug Reactions reports, etc.)
Our clinical research program focuses on the global regulatory framework of Drug development and Pharmacovigilance such as Good Clinical Practices (GCP), Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GVP), and others as well as the Canadian healthcare system, Canadian regulatory agencies, healthcare legislation, international guidelines (ICH), and standard operating procedures (SOP). Using practical and current real cases, the clinical research training program at AAPS integrates a unique approach and provides students with the foundation and practical knowledge to formulate a sound clinical development plan; ensure clinical trial data is credible and accurate; and that the rights, integrity and confidentiality of trial subjects are protected.
Clinical research college graduates are well-trained and knowledgeable professionals in the field, playing a vital role in protecting the study participant and the general population for marketed drugs and in helping to reduce the time between drug development and marketing approval. The demand for highly qualified Clinical Research and Pharmacovigilance professionals continues to grow as supply is limited.
