Participate in the NC TraCS Institute Investigator Training Program (iTP)

The Investigator Training Program is an educational program designed to support clinical trial investigators. It aims to improve the many skills required for the planning, conducting, and reporting of clinical trials.

The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute in collaboration with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals will host an Investigator Training Program (iTP) on Thursday, October 21 from 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Friday, October 22 from 7:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the UNC-Chapel Hill Center for School Leadership Development.

The Investigator Training Program is an educational program designed to support clinical trial investigators. It aims to improve the many skills required for the planning, conducting, and reporting of clinical trials. The ITP provides a forum in which all personnel involved in clinical trials can share their experiences and receive practical advice on trial organization and execution. The program examines the entire trial process, from the planning stages through to trial close-out activities, and provides practical recommendations for increasing the efficiency of clinical trial conduct at investigative sites.
