Bachelor of Science in Clinical Research Management
The Bachelor of Science in Clinical Research Management is designed for students in the early stages of a career in clinical research, as well as more experienced individuals such as investigators, coordinators, or sponsor representatives who want to expand their knowledge and skills in the field.
