Research Professionals Network Workshop Series
The Research Professionals Network offers a series of peer-led, collaborative workshops focused on topics relevant to our research professional staff and based in the Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency Framework. Come learn from your colleagues’ expertise and experiences! Workshops are taught by peer staff from the collaborating sites: BMC/BU Medical Campus, University of Vermont (and affiliate Maine Medical Center), University of Florida (and affiliate Florida State University), and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC).
Registration is required. You must be a member of your institution’s Research Professionals Network to attend RPN workshops (if you are from BU or BMC it’s easy to become a member… click here! For UF contact Robert Kolb; for UVM contact Kimberly Luebbers; for MUSC contact Diana Lee-Chavarria). Research professionals who attend the RPN workshops can receive CEUs for this training from SoCRA or ACRP. Note your interest on the registration form.
