Clinical Research Organization and Management

Several of my family members went to Drexel University for medical school. This was in the days before it was called Drexel College of Medicine. Back in those days, we had the Medical College of Pennsylvania (MCP) and Hahnemann University. Then, those two medical schools combined to form a single medical school that included both names. Then, the schools became Drexel University. Much simpler than MCP Hahnemann.

If you're interested in clinical research, you may be interested to know that Drexel (and others) offer an online master's program: Master of Science in Clinical Research Organization and Management. The program is a 36-credit hour master's program for "busy physicians, physician assistants, nurses, clinical fellows, research coordinators, and individuals working in the field." You can find more information about this program by clicking here.

This 5 tracks of study:
  1. New Product Research
  2. Regulatory Compliance and Law
  3. Biostatistics and Data Management
  4. Clinical Research Management and Safety & Surveillance
  5. Business and Strategic Planning of New Product Development
I'm a big fan of e-learning. I believe that if you can be disciplined to study independently, then you can do well in an online program where you need to take the initiative to complete your assignments and prepare for exams.
