• Objectives
Program directors, in collaboration with departments performing and administrating all aspects of clinical research, interviewed and hired a cohort of individuals that are naïve to clinical research, into entry-level positions. These employees worked closely with a mentor within the hiring department, and went through a clinical research education and training program, with increasing levels of work responsibilities over time. The program employed a blended learning approach, including independent study, classroom training, webinars and on-the-job training and shadowing. We have completed to cohorts of the program. This presentation will talk about the successes and barriers of implementing said program.
