UF Research Coordinators Consortium

Research coordinators come from many different backgrounds and often have different titles, such as research technologist, specialty nurse or research assistant. Regardless of background or title, all coordinators must follow the same policies, regulations and laws. The UF Research Coordinators Consortium is directed by and for study coordinators to provide forums for networking, education and resource-sharing to help members navigate the profession while prioritizing and ensuring optimal human subject protections. The UF Research Coordinators Consortium presents an excellent opportunity for research coordinators and others involved in clinical research to share “best practices” and to discuss common issues and concerns. Consortium members also have access to an email listserv to share information and pose questions to colleagues at UF.

The RCC Charter is available for review by interested parties.
