The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) was created to house all non-Physician certification programs (CRA, CRC and non-physician Investigator).
The Academy of Pharmaceutical Physicians and Investigators (APPI ) is affiliated with ACRP and is now the administrative entity for the Physician Investigator exam. So, let's take a look at each of these acronyms:
- CRA: Clinical Research Associate
- CRC: Clinical Research Coordinator
- CPI: Clinical Physician Investigator
- CTI: Clinical Trial Investigator
