Program Overview (online, part-time only)
Geared toward a wide range of professionals, the Clinical Trials Design & Management Certificate Program provides a foundation for preparing candidates to lead and to manage the development and implementation of scientifically valid clinical study designs including monitoring of clinical trials and directing daily clinical trial operations. The interdisciplinary program encompasses critical core competency areas including biostatistics, federal regulations, bioethics and project management as integral parts of drug product development and medical device design validation required for federal regulatory market clearance and initial commercialization. The program plan is ideal for working professionals and consists of 17 semester credit hours, delivered by Internet-based instruction, with occasional face-to-face sessions at the UGA Gwinnett Campus. The program is part of UGA’s Regulatory Sciences Graduate Education Program.
