Tried the cheaper programs at Udemy first. Those covered the bare basics of clinical data management. If you wish to seriously persue a career in clinical data management this is the course to go for. Covers the theoritical process, documentation and regulations in clinical data management and then covers the practical application including designing a study, creating CRFs, data entry, validation programming, discrepancy management etc using the Oracle Clinical software. The good part is you don’t just see, you can do the tasks yourself as you get access to the actual software used in the industry. I would definitely recommend this to professionals serious about making a career in clinical data management.

Good decision to have taken this program!

Was looking for a course in clinical data management. Chose this course as they promised to provide access to Oracle Clinical software for practice. True to their word, received an email with access credentials to Oracle Clinical, the moment i enrolled and paid for the course. Support helped me setup the application on my computer. Case Report Forms were provided in the learning portal to practice on. Very happy with my decision. Recommend it to others who may be in the same situation as me.
