Good Clinical Practice training

GCP is the international ethical, scientific and practical standard to which all clinical research is conducted. By undertaking GCP, you’re able to demonstrate the rights, safety and well-being of your research participants are protected, and that the data collected are reliable.

If you’re interested in attending GCP training, please email Research Ethics to find out how to book onto further sessions. Please note that the local courses for the rest of this year are full, however new dates have been agreed and will shortly be added to the booking system.
