The prospective co-course director should be an expert in clinical trials and have had experience in designing and/or leading clinical trials. The applicant should have a passion for excellence in teaching.

This course is offered in the winter quarter every year. It is required for the Master’s in Clinical Research and Advanced Training in Clinical Research certificate programs and also draws students from the Epidemiology and Translational Science PhD Program and students outside of UCSF. By the end of the course, students are expected to have a solid understanding of clinical trial design and have developed their own trial protocol. Weekly course activities include lectures; practical application workshops and small group discussions occur bimonthly.
