Good Clinical Practice Courses

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, recording and reporting studies that involve human participants. Attending GCP courses are an essential requirement for any researcher involved in commercial or non-commercial studies. Compliance with GCP provides assurance that the rights, safety and well-being of research subjects are protected and that the results of the study are credible.

 

Please be aware that there are two different GCP courses available!
