Specialist Diploma in Clinical Trials Management
In 2000, the Economic Development Board (EDB) launched the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) initiative. As part of this initiative, EDB plans to build capabilities in translational and clinical research to bring discoveries from the bench to the bedside and the marketplace and ultimately improve human healthcare.
Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) has specially tailored the Specialist Diploma in Clinical Trials Management to provide participants with the ability to play critical roles in Clinical Trial operations. Emphasis is placed on hands-on application & case-based learning.
The 40 week part-time course provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of clinical trials through lectures, role-play, project work and practical sessions.
Applicants should be university graduates in Life Sciences, Pharmacy, Nursing or equivalent. Polytechnic Diploma graduates in Nursing, Biotechnology or equivalent would also be considered.
Participants are required to attend all 7 academic modules with a minimum of 85% attendance for each module and will be assessed based on in-course assessments, group presentations, individual reports, group projects, individual written assignments, and examinations.
Upon successful completion of the programme, participants will be awarded the Specialist Diploma in Clinical Trials Management by Nanyang Polytechnic.
