ICH GCP adapted for The US in English | Good Clinical Practice Training Course

This course is a current and comprehensive guide to Good Clinical Practice and its principles as applied in the US. Updated Nov 2016.

The ICH GCP course will give you a current and comprehensive guide to the principles of Good Clinical Practice. In 1997, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) endorsed the Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines developed by the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH). GCP is an international standard for the design, conduct, performance, monitoring, auditing, recording, analysis, and reporting of clinical trials. This course has been accredited by the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom. This online training solution is a perfect choice for healthcare professionals who are new to clinical trials. The course could also provide a timely update for the experienced clinical research MDs and nurses. Updated with ICH E6 (R2) in Nov 2016.
