If you are into the field of medicine or hospital management you already know very well what clinical research means. Clinical research is the testing of drugs and medicines on human subjects that can actually bring about a change in the human condition and can eradicate disease altogether. For example, Alexander Fleming invented the penicillin, the antibiotic that changed the world forever. Testing a new drug to cure a disease or a condition was easy in the past as people would willingly be submitting themselves as part of the research for a small amount of money. However, this is not true for the current generation. With the evolvement of bio-weapons and recent developments in the field of medicine, it is hard to get the required permissions in order to test new drugs on humans and animals.

Education in the field of Clinical research guides you through the procedure of how to go about getting permission from the national as well as international level committees. Also, it teaches you about the four basic phases of the clinical research that allows an individual to carry out the process without facing any kind of legal problems.

Education with ICRI

ICRI is one of the top premier institutes providing the necessary education in the field of clinical research. There are several benefits of studying at the ICRI, some of these include,

Option to choose from part-time/full-time courses:

ICRI provides several courses that serve the purpose of providing a high level of education to graduate students. The students of the institute have the option of choosing either a part-time or a full-time course. This means that if you have already taken up a job, it is still not too late to enhance your skills by participating in the further studies. Some of the full-time courses provided at the institute include,

  • MSc in Clinical Research-2 year (UGC Recognized)
  • D. in Clinical Research-2 year (UGC Recognized)
  • MBA in Healthcare Management-2 year (UGC Recognized)
  • PG Diploma in Advanced Clinical Research & Pharmacovigilance
  • MBA in Pharma Marketing & Management
  • PG Diploma in Pharmacovigilance

These full-time courses are each of a length of 2 years. The students can also opt for the following part-time courses after completion of their graduation.

If you do not have the time or the financial resources to participate in the full-time course you can always opt for the part-time courses

Dedicated corporate training programs

Another reason to choose ICRI to boost his/her career is the dedicated corporate programs that make an individual ready with an industry-oriented mindset. Also, the corporate programs train the individuals with hands-on experience in the field of clinical research to ensure that he/she is ready for the day to day problems of the industry and can tackle them easily.

We all know how the lives of a student and a working-person differ. The corporate programs basically allow eradicating the lines between these two fields giving an overall exposure to the student which allows him/her to work under pressure and strict deadlines as necessary. There are several training modules which are part of the curriculum and these modules can be tailored specifically to the students’ need by the help of the supportive staff at the ICRI.

The training specialists and the virtual training programs at ICRI also allow the students to gain an invaluable exposure to the industry.

International symposiums and conferences

The international exposure is highly valuable to the students who plan on going on for further studies in foreign countries. Also, the field of clinical research is a multinational field with ICRI having associations with various major international clients such as Ranbaxy, DR Reddy’s labs, Glaxo SmithKline, Novartis, etc. These factors require an international exposure as part of the curriculum.

The ICRI satisfies this need by the means of establishing several international symposiums as well as conferences at its campuses throughout the year. Participating in such symposiums allows the students to come in contact with several foreign universities as well as executives that can help them gain a seat at a prestigious college or a job at an international company.

Being one of the premier institutes of India, no other Indian institute comes close to providing the specialized education in the field of clinical research making the ICRI one of the best institutes you can get your higher education from. Also, other factors such as strong staff support and industry tie-ups of the institute allow the students to explore the world from India without facing any kind of legal problems while conducting their own clinical research for a new drug.

Clinical Research is full of opportunities:

The clinical trials market worldwide is worth over USD 26 billion and the industry has employed an estimated 2,10,000 people in the US & over 70,000 in the UK, and that form one-third of the total research and development staff. There are more than 2,50,000 positions vacant globally & salaries vary in the region of approximately USD 40,000 per annum for a Clinical Research Coordinator.
