And good clinical practice

For all disciplines within clinical development and research


If you work in clinical development and research - and whether you are inexperienced or seasoned in your work – you can find courses and training that expand your current skills and knowledge here.


There is an increased demand in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries for qualified professionals in clinical development. Our courses are designed to meet this demand, offering you a specialised understanding of Good Clinical Practice (GCP), based on the issues you meet in your daily work and formed by a practical industry and academic approach.


We offer life long learning from basic to expert level, because we know that the need for upgrading competences changes throughout your career.


Our courses cover key stages of a drug’s development cycle and aim to satisfy the educational need of practicing clinical research professionals.

You will find courses that are focused on Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and GCP training, and courses that focuses on specific subject areas, such as Clinical Trial Management, Risk-Based Monitoring and Site Audits & Inspections. Other courses look into the complexity of outsourcing and insourcing contracts and vendor management. Others again, focus on how to generate and utilize Real World Evidence.

What is GCP and ICH-GCP?

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is an international quality standard for clinical trials and includes both scientific and ethical guidelines.

In clinical trial trials in the EU, compliance with GCP is a legal requirement that e.g. helps to safeguard the subjects and their rights as well as a valid data collection that complies with the Helsinki Declaration.

GCP is a common standard for the EU, the USA and Japan, just as the guidelines take into account standards in Australia, Canada and under WHO auspices. Therefore, trials conducted under the requirements of GCP can be approved by the authorities of most countries.

Good Clinical Practice describes guidelines for all phases of clinical trials such as the design, planning, implementation and reporting of trial results.

GCP is described in the “ICH Harmonized Tripartite Guideline for Good Clinical Practice”, from which the abbreviation ICH-GCP also derives.
