ACRP Professional Development Courses

Professional development is an essential part of achieving the highest level of patient safety, data quality and regulatory compliance. To foster professional development, the UF CTSI Clinical Research Professionals Advisory Council has partnered with the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) to provide courses on a variety of topics related to human subjects research.

These courses encompass many aspects of clinical research. Some courses are directly related to the work research coordinators perform on a daily basis, and some provide more specialized information. Research coordinators are encouraged to explore the list of available courses.
