About this Course


CTAs are one of several key documents that govern the conduct of clinical trials. A CTA serves as a legally binding contract between a sponsor, site, and researcher, and outlines each party’s responsibilities and obligations for the clinical trial. It is imperative that researchers and sites understand the importance of CTA development, negotiation, and execution, as effectiveness in these areas will increase efficiency, protect researchers/sites and subjects, and help advance research.

This course supplements the foundational training provided in the Biomedical Basic course. Organizations may add the modules in this course to their basic HSR courses to provide learners with focused CTA training.
