As data obtained from clinical trials will facilitate the use of new medical products in an evidence-based manner, the credibility of such data is very important. The site of the clinical trial must enable researchers to obtain high-quality results and monitor subjects adequately.

Over the years, site selection has been increasingly influenced by numerous factors such as the economic and social climate of the chosen country. This course teaches participants the basics of site selection for clinical trials. You will also learn how to bring a substandard site to a standard level where accurate results can be obtained and proper documentation and archiving ensured.


In this course, we provide a synthesis of the topic through an interactive online experience. This material was built by a team of Regulatory Affairs Experts with a Qualification from Northeastern University, Boston, piloted by a Senior Member able to articulate theory with practice.
