CRC Lunch and Learn

CRC Lunch and Learn sessions are held monthly between September and June. The purpose of these sessions is to provide an education forum specific to clinical research.  The sessions also provide an opportunity for coordinators to network with others involved in clinical research. Registration for upcoming sessions is available on the event calendar.

Clinical Research Professional Development (CRPD) Program

The CRPD Resources Document, produced by the CRPD team, provides professional development resources for clinical research coordinators and includes the workshops that will be offered.
