Diploma in Clinical Project Management

A clinical project management programme for professionals in clinical development


Managing and leading a clinical development project is complex, and it requires that you have a specialised understanding of project management in a clinical research setting. Successful clinical project management can help reduce delays, errors, and unnecessary workflows and in the end save resources for everyone involved in the project.

Atrium’s Diploma in Clinical Project Management has been developed as a collaboration between IMPLEMENT Learning Institute and a team of internationally renowned clinical development experts from the pharmaceutical industry, clinical research organisations, and academia to ensure relevance and practice-orientation for professionals involved in clinical trials.

The Diploma consists of two modules that cover key stages of a clinical development project. To obtain the Diploma in Clinical Project Management you must pass the exam after Module 2.

Module 1: Manage your Project

Learn about tools and methods for successful management of a clinical development project and tools for planning and follow-up that maximize the efficiency and success of your project.

Module 2: Lead your Project Team

Learn how you make good use of the project team’s knowledge, experiences, and opinions in a beneficial process that is both well thought out and well-managed.


  • Stakeholder management
  • Project timelines and budgets
  • Project risk management
  • Development of the project team
  • Staging and design of workshops and meetings including steering committee meetings
  • Leadership in practice

Target group

This Diploma is relevant for professionals in clinical research and development from sponsor/CRO or academia/site, who are involved in clinical development projects (e.g. clinical trial projects, product development, R&D projects, and late-stage projects) and want to improve their project management skills.


Module 1: To enroll in this course you must have a relevant educational background at bachelor level and, as a minimum, 6-12 months of experience in clinical project management, or other equivalent qualifications. We assess all applications upon registration.

Module 2: To enroll in this course you must previously have completed the course “Clinical Project Management Module 1: Manage your project ”. Alternatively, you must have similar skills and experinece as those obtained on Module 1.

If you don’t fulfill the requirements, you can still apply for the courses if you have experience in the clinical project management area that qualifies you to benefit from the training and enables you to participate actively during the courses. We accept that up to 10% of the seats are taken by applicants who have no or very limited experience in clinical project management. We consider applicants on a case-by-case basis.
