Clinical Research Design and Statistics Practice Training Program

Program Overview

In the face of emerging research issues and challenges, such as initiation of unclear clinical trials, the needs for rigorous research design, inefficient supervision and implementation, unreported or unregulated results, a group of outstanding clinical research experts at major medical schools in the United States formally launched a series of clinical trial training courses and seminars sponsored by Academy of Clinical Research and Study, aiming to systematically train the internationally standardized methodology of clinical trials and related research and to promote the cultivation of the most urgent methodological experts in the world .

Now,along with the expansion of our forum and an increasing number of audiences who are eager to systematically learn more clinical trial by participating in online webinar training for clinical research. Therefore, we would like to initiate a training certificate program for global audience to learn the standard and advanced designs of clinical trials and related clinical research methodology.

Program Teaching Model

ELearning:  We offer 40 online classes with each class consisting a talk for 1.5 hours and a case study component that last 30 minutes.


Webinars:   We offer bi-weekly webinars to facilitate learning processes.


Workshop:  We offer 20 one-hour online workshops to focus on project discussion.


Get final Certificate:  When the candidate finishes at least one design project and get instructor approval, the candidate is qualified to receive the final Certificate.


We are inviting elite researcher and professors from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Northwestern University, Duke University and beyond, to join the certification program as instructors and mentors. We hope to promote the internationalization of clinical research and aim to train future clinical research methodology talents and research clinicians to meet international standards.
