Module 1 

Managing a clinical development project is a complex and intricate process. A trial has many factors to rely on to be executed successfully. Clinical Project Management Module 1 will strengthen your understanding of the methods you use when working on clinical development projects and the fundamental tools for planning and follow-up that maximize the efficiency and success of your project as well as your role and responsibilities as project manager.

During the three day course you will be able to create a project overview, plan and set the objectives. You will work with analysing and managing risks and understand their value to making informed decisions. You will become able to evaluate the collaboration in the project team and know how to deal with stakeholders.

As course partcipants come from a wide variety of academia, CROs, Medical Device, and pharma companies, network and exchange of experiences will be a big part of this module. We will do our best to take advantage of this by incorporating different experiences and viewpoints to the training sessions. The many practical exercises and discussions are great opportunities for you to strengthen your network.

Since this course is an interactive course with many cases and workshops that put the theoretical concepts into practice we expect you to participate actively.

This course is conducted in English, and is developed in collaboration with IMPLEMENT Learning Institute.

To obtain a Diploma in Clinical Project Management you must pass the exam of Module 2.

  • IMPLEMENT 8 Modules e-learning license (750,- DKK - mandatory)
