The Clinical Research Professional Associate in Science (A.S.) program gives students the skills necessary to maintain and elevate the health and wellbeing of the population worldwide. Through clinical research trials and historical studies, these critical research professionals work to identify better ways to detect, diagnose, treat and prevent the spread of disease.
There has never been a time where the need for clinical research professionals has been greater. Florida ranks within the top five states in the country for clinical studies and is home to many of the nation’s largest research facilities and organizations.
This program prepares students for employment as entry-level clinical research professionals. Program graduates will possess the knowledge and skills required to initiate, implement and follow-up on clinical trials while adhering to all applicable regulations.
The Clinical Research Coordinator Technical Certificate (T.C.) is embedded within this program. Students may pursue the A.S. degree and earn the certificate while completing the requirements for the degree, or pursue the certificate to develop or upgrade their skills.
Graduates will be encouraged to take the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) certification exam or the Society of Clinical Research Association (SOCRA) Certified Clinical Research Professionals (CRPS) exam once work experience eligibility requirements have been fulfilled.
