The Education Core provides education and training for the clinical research community through the delivery of courses, events, webinars and Open Educational Resources (OERs).
Our aim is to provide an extensive programme of education for all individuals involved in clinical research that promotes and inspires excellence. We provide courses, webinars and events that cover a wide variety of topics, including:
- planning and conducting research
- collecting and analysing data
- effectively communicating findings.
Our courses are open to all who are involved or interested in clinical research, regardless of academic level, discipline, profession or organisation. We are also developing a range of digital Open Educational Resources (OERs) relating to clinical research that can be used and repurposed freely.
The Education Core works closely with NHS Lothian and University of Edinburgh colleagues, as well as other Clinical Research Facilities, academic institutions and industry partners, to ensure that the education provided is current, relevant and meets the requirements of local and national clinical research communities.
