The program focuses on foundational knowledge and skills necessary to understand the structure, function and operations of biopharmaceutical companies, clinical research organizations, clinical study sites, academic medical centers and other organizations involved in biopharmaceutical clinical trials.

The program requires 18 credit hours for completion and consists of two tracks: one for individuals with clinical research experience and one for individuals with no clinical research experience.
