Why Study Clinical Research Operations?

Are you interested in becoming a clinical trial manager, a health informatics research analyst or a clinical research associate? These careers and many more will be open to those who graduate from our new MSc in Clinical Research Operations. This course takes place over 12 months and offers a unique blend of clinical research and business technology skills.

Don’t have time to commit to full-time education? This course is perfect for you. It takes up just two evenings a week and an additional two Saturdays per month. Broken into two stages, stage one will see graduates complete a two-semester programme of lectures in Clinical Research (building up 60 ETCS Credits). On the completion of the first stage, students will already have earned a Postgraduate Diploma in Science in Clinical Research. This is followed by stage two, a one-semester dissertation that leads to you becoming a Master of Science in Clinical Research.

Semester one takes you through:

•    Processes, production and pharmaceutical quality systems

•    Pre-clinical research, regulatory and ethical requirements

•    Principles of clinical research

While semester two consists of:

•    Operational excellence & the science of innovation

•    Strategy, leadership & the culture of innovation

•    Managing a clinical research project

In semester three, you will focus on a range of research methods and the dissertation that will secure you that coveted MSc title and a whole range of new job prospects!

We know that it’s not easy to work and pursue further education at the same time so our classes are broadcast live for you to follow along with a class online if you can’t make it in person. You can also review recordings of the class after to help with revision. Online learning and support is available through Moodle so you can make your own study schedule.

You’ll also be supplied with mentorship from industry experts to help you grow your career and succeed. On top of learning from best-in-class lecturers, you’ll also gain great contacts from fellow classmates, who are very supportive of one another. Past student, Mike Corkery identifies this as one of the best aspects of his time with Innopharma. “The main positives I got from the course were the quality of my fellow students and their determination to better themselves.”

For those who wish to progress their careers, our courses also have a large focus on networking, presentation and communication skills. Many of our past students have credited their Innopharma course as being instrumental in helping them to progress in the industry.
