In the 21st Century, healthcare expenditure makes a vital contribution to the performance of the global economy. The demand on the healthcare industry for high quality products and services makes medical drugs and devices two of the most profitable business sectors in the world. Against this backdrop is the need to provide value for money, ensure the efficacy and safety of drugs and devices and reduce the time it takes for them to reach the market. This is where clinical researchers make an important contribution. Clinical research is conducted on a global scale to ensure organisations provide a consistent approach and service ? no matter where in the world it is being delivered. Today?s clinical research personnel must demonstrate an appreciation of the discovery process for medical interventions by attaining a thorough understanding of experimental design and statistical interpretation and a knowledge of national, European and international regulations, guidelines, ethical requirements and research governance. Increasingly employers are demanding highly qualified and well trained professional staff, who are able to work within a team environment and complete tasks efficiently within specified time scales. The blend of skills and knowledge offered in this course, comprising scientific and clinical practice, communication skills and refined project management provide an excellent starting point for a career in clinical research. Our Clinical Research MSc is modular and divided into three parts: ? Eight compulsory modules structured to cover the scientific, technological, managerial, ethical and commercial aspects of this complex topic. This element constitutes 40% of the overall mark. The marks for each of the modules are usually obtained through a combination of written assignments, group presentations and examination. ? Working in a team, using knowledge and skills gained during the taught modules you'll prepare a substantial dossier of required documentation for a clinical research programme. This element constitutes 20% of the overall mark. The marks are obtained through individual and group assessments. ? A four month research project, carried out either at Cranfield, in industry or academia or for part-time candidates - in your place of work. This is a fantastic opportunity to apply your new-found knowledge and skills in a real-life setting, it also allows you to make invaluable contacts with potential employers before even completing the course. This element constitutes 40% of the overall mark. The marks are obtained from a combination of a submitted thesis, oral presentation of your research and application and initiative shown during the project which is assessed by the supervisor. Modules: Introduction to Clinical Trials and Clinical Trials Practice Biomedical Basis of Human Disease Experimental Methods: Advanced Design and Analysis Business Management and Health Economics Research Governance and Ethics Pre-clinical Evaluation Clinical Evaluation I: Practical and Scientific Perspectives of Translational Medicine Clinical Evaluation II: Commercial Aspects and Implications Affecting Clinical Research Clinical Evaluation III: Regulatory Requirements and Seeking Approval Clinical Evaluation IV: Clinical Research-Marketing Interface Group project This follows the taught modules. Students will work in small teams on a project requiring the use of all knowledge and skills gained from the taught modules. Research project This crucial part of the course gives you the chance to apply the research skills acquired during the taught phase of the course to a practical problem in clinical research. The project can be undertaken in a variety of settings including academia or industry.
