Are you a research coordinator who is focused on professional development?
You might be interested in serving on the UF CTSI Clinical Research Professionals Advisory Council, helping to network and share resources with the clinical research community. The group meets quarterly and ad hoc as indicated.
Representatives from a variety of departments serve on the council, a diverse group of clinical research professionals who promote cross-functional collaboration for research initiatives at UF. The council’s goal is to help clinical research coordinators grow professionally and to achieve success at UF by being champions for clinical research, and facilitate collaborative discussion forums to exchange information.
The members of the council:
• Act as advocates for professional development opportunities for the clinical research coordinator community
• Offer insight to senior leadership about workflows in order to help strategize training plans for all CRPs
• Provide a connection between CRPs and functional units involved with clinical research
• Identify and disseminate best-practice information within the CRP community
