For those of you interested in pursuing additional academic coursework in clinical research . . . .


A clinical research management course will be offered at UAB School of Nursing this Spring entitled:


CRM 670Q  Clinical Research Ethics, Methods and Clinical Trials (3 hrs).

(The course was offered last Spring 2009 as NUR 690).


Attached are the following documents that may help give you further information on this course, our Clinical Research Management courses at UAB School of Nursing and Instructions for course registration as a non-degree-seeking student.  Students wishing to enroll should have a baccalaureate degree.  Open to nurses and non-nurses.  Clinical research experience (optional but beneficial).


1.  Spring 2010 CRM 670 Course Flier

2.  Program of Studies for CRM Courses

3.  Instructions for Enrollment as a Non-Degree-Seeking Student OR as an MSN student.


I hope that you will consider enrolling in this course.  During 2009 we achieved an enrollment of about a dozen students per course who were either working in clinical research or had interest in pursuing a clinical research career.  Feedback from all students has been exceptionally positive.  All courses are offered as asynchronous distance-learning (internet-based) courses and can be achieved during your own spare time.  Students may take individual courses or all 18 credits in CRM for a Post-BS Certificate (pending final UAB approvals in 2010).  Also, students may take courses as graduate electives or for an MSN in Clinical Research Management through UAB SON Individualized Study Option.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
