Good Clinical Practice 


This course is designed to increase the quality of clinical studies conducted at an investigational site.

Attendance at a Good Clinical Practice (GCP) course is a legal requirement in many countries for surgeons who wish to conduct clinical research. Every investigator conducting clinical studies is required to follow GCP guidelines. 

The course covers the GCP guidelines of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) as well as the ISO standard 14155 for clinical investigations of medical devices for human subjects—Good Clinical Practice. 

A standard for the design, conduct, performance, monitoring, analysis and reporting of clinical trials that provides assurance that the data and reported results are credible and accurate and that the rights, integrity and confidentiality of the trial subjects are protected.
