UMMC, in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic and Pennsylvania State University, has created the Clinical Research Education for the Workforce (CREW) program. More information about the program can be found below.
Modeled after Mayo Clinic’s training program, CREW is UMMC’s first institutional training and development program specifically for employees serving as Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs), regardless of title. The 40-hour, certificate program includes 20 hours of foundational, online training and 5 half-day, in-person, educational sessions.
Made possible by NIH grant 3UL1TR002014-03S2, the program is free to all UMMC faculty and staff and features:
Registrants should first complete the pre-test in HealthStream, followed by the online course components, which must be completed prior to the in-person component. After the in-person component, a post-test is required.
The pre-test, online HealthStream courses, and post-test will be assigned after registration, except as noted below. All applicable CITI courses must be completed as well. An online course listing can be found below:
All faculty and staff interested in expanding their clinical research knowledge are welcome to attend.
The online portion of the program is accessible via HealthStream as outlined above. The virtual component will be hosted quarterly. Registration is available here (external site). Future sessions include:
