We provide learning and professional development opportunities to Stanford faculty, staff, students, and scholars in all areas of clinical and translational research.

Our Focus

We support clinical research through certificate programs, workshops, one-on-one mentorship, and seminars that allow our workforce as well as our faculty and researchers to update their skills, increase their knowledge base, and gain valuable experience.

Clinical Research Operations Program

The Clinical Research Operations Program offers classes on clinical research involving human subjects. The goal of the program is to raise the quality of clinical research across Stanford and to enhance the career growth of our clinical research personnel.

Essentials of Clinical Research

The Essentials of Clinical Research course is for investigators engaged in clinical research at Stanford. It introduces the fundamentals of clinical research: design, analysis, Good Clinical Practice (GCP), management, and regulatory. The course will cover both experimental and observational studies with an emphasis on clinical trials.

Intensive Course in Clinical Research (ICCR)

Intensive Course in Clinical Research (ICCR) is a week-long course designed to expose residents and faculty to the fundamental principles, terminology, and breadth of study design, biostatistics, informatics, regulatory issues, and bioethics in a highly intensive immersion setting. The course includes approximately 60 hours of total instruction and research design exercises.

Research Career Accelerator Program (ReCAP)

The Research Career Accelerator Program (ReCAP) provides an opportunity for junior faculty, fellows, and postdocs who are current recipients of individual career development awards (CDAs) from government (e.g., K awards) or from professional societies to interact and build relationships with other current recipients across the institution. Monthly seminars are conducted throughout the calendar year.
