The One-Year Clinical Research Workshop is intended for individuals who wish to learn the basic methods and conduct of clinical research and may not have time to complete additional electives in a formal degree-granting program or may not need a formal degree.

This workshop includes courses that are the starting point for all clinical research training and core requirements at UCSF. The objectives are to:

  • Learn the methods required to perform both observational and experimental clinical research;
  • Plan and implement one or more clinical research projects; and
  • Analyze, interpret, and present clinical research data.

Individuals interested in our formal degree programs can view the Advanced Training in Clinical Research program or the Master's in Clinical and Epidemiological Research program.

Individuals interested in a shorter (7 weeks) introduction to clinical research can view the Summer Clinical Research Workshop.


Applications are due July 1, 2024.
