The CLIC Programme is aimed at the certification of clinical investigators. Level 1 has been approved and has been in operation since 2015. The implementation of level 2 starts in 2018. The Programme strictly follows the European syllabus, published in March 2013. The syllabus was prepared by PharmaTrain - which is a European initiative for the qualification and standardisation of pharmaceutical medicine education - and ECRIN (European Clinical Research Infrastructures Network) - which is a European network of infrastructures dedicated to clinical research, represented in Portugal by PtCRIN. The Programme operates in an e-learning format. In addition to documents that can be printed or viewed on the computer, participants find on the platform lectures recorded on video, which can be accessed at any time, thus making it compatible with the personal and professional life of health professionals. Level 2 certification is intended for the certification of Principal Investigators of clinical trials.
The Programme has been prepared with the aim of qualifying from the point of view of acquiring theoretical knowledge the members of clinical research teams (clinical trials, observational studies and other clinical studies), in health institutions. The course does not include training in attitudes and practical skills.
The course is delivered exclusively in e-learning format and is based on pre-recorded video lectures and supporting materials made available in pdf format.
Certification is obtained by passing a final exam with a mark of 75% or more. The exam is a multiple-choice exam with 5 answer options and is available on the course platform at the end of the lectures visualisation, upon request of the participant.
Trainees will complete a satisfaction survey at the end of the course.
Professionals and lecturers from universities with extensive experience in clinical research have been invited for this course. Most of them are PhD professionals from institutions that are part of PtCRIN (Health Units and Clinical Trial Units (CTU)). For their practical experience, we also include some technicians from the pharmaceutical industry and members of the competent authorities in the evaluation of clinical trials.
The list of lecturers can be found in the Curriculum Plan/Detailed Programme.
The presentations have been recorded and will be made available online after registration. None of these professionals have received or will receive any remuneration.
The program is particularly aimed at medical researchers who will act as principal investigators in the studies. However, it is not limited to them given the importance of everyone in a multidisciplinary team knowing the diversity of roles.
