Clinical Research Orientation

College of Medicine Clinical Research Orientation: An Introduction to Clinical Research Principles

In July 2011, the College of Medicine Office of Research initiated a quarterly Clinical Research Orientation program. These educational sessions present an overview of clinical research principles, ethics, regulations, policies, processes and management of human subject research conducted at OSUWMC. All newly hired clinical research staff should complete their module set within 6 months of employment as part of their new employee onboarding.

The orientation has been restructured to better meet the needs of our end users: themed content packaged in short yet concentrated 2-3 hour sessions, with more interactive learning and a focus on comprehension. 

Module 1: Foundations of Clinical Research

Module 2: Recruitment​ & Informed Consent 

Module 3: Data Management

Module 4: Budgets & Contracts 

All modules are open to OSUWMC employees involved in clinical research. COMOR recommends the following module schedule based on the specific job titles:

Clinical Research Coordinator: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Clinical Research Assistant: 1, 2, 3, 5

Regulatory Compliance Officer: 1, 2, 5

Fiscal Officer: 1, 2, 3, 4
