Clinical Research Consulting Marks First Anniversary of Online Educational Courses with Worldwide Customers from Diverse Organizations

Consulting Firm Continues to Focus on the Education and Training Needs of Clinical Researchers

Boston, Massachusetts, October 24, 2007 – Clinical Research Consulting, Inc., a contract research organization (CRO) specializing in clinical monitoring, project management, education and training, announced today that its online clinical research courses are gaining acceptance from a number of organizations, from small clinical practices to large tertiary hospitals, since their introduction one year ago. The courses are being used by new clinical research coordinators and investigators, experienced clinical research coordinators preparing for certification, and other individuals seeking employment in the clinical research field who have no prior clinical research industry experience.

The Clinical Research Course and the Principal Investigator Course provide an in-depth overview of the clinical research industry and the primary roles and responsibilities of clinical researchers and investigators. The interactive courses also provide research organizations with documentation and a cost effective method of continuing education for their employees.

“The CRCI online Clinical Research Education Program was extremely helpful to me,” said Diane McEniry, a Registered Medical Assistant at New York Advanced Urology. “I was tossed into the new and exciting role of working in the clinical research industry, but needed the education and training in order to fulfill my newly defined role. The course helped me gain a thorough and strong foundation of the industry and has helped me excel in my current position. I mostly enjoyed the ‘real life scenarios’ that are presented at the end of each module because I have now encountered some in my real life experience on the job and know how to handle them.”

Brianna Foerman, Research Coordinator, CMA at Anchor Research Center, added: “The CRCI online Clinical Research Education Program provided me the flexibility of completing the course at my own pace and timeline. In addition, I enjoyed the benefit of being able to access and work on the course from any computer (at work or home) as the program is internet based via CRCI’s website. This is a nice change of pace in comparison to other classroom type training programs. I would recommend this program to other colleagues.”

Clinical Research Consulting is currently negotiating with two large clinical research institutions to be the sole education and training partner for all new clinical research personnel.

“We’ve had a great response from a variety of individuals and organizations since we introduced the courses last year and have successfully trained students from U.S. and abroad. The courses have also been recognized by a large, pharmaceutical research sponsor who is recommending them to many of their clinical research sites, ” said Lisa Mazurka, President, Clinical Research Consulting, Inc. “Our goal is to continue to address the education and training gap that currently exists in the clinical research industry.”
