CTSI Online Education Curriculum
CTSI offers Designing Clinical Research for Clinical Trainees (DCR-CT) and Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) online. Learners may choose a traditional classroom or a fully online experience for DCR-CT. The RCR course is available only online.
NEW for 2014: How to Write a PCORI Grant, a free online mini-course on key elements of applying for PCORI funding.
Online education is a convenient option for those who prefer a time-flexible and travel-free program. Learners may participate from any location as long as they have an Internet connection and meet minimum technology requirements. While courses require participation several days each week, learners may log in to the course site and engage in learning activities any time of the day or night as long as designated due dates/times are met.
CTSI online courses are identical to the traditional classroom courses in every way aside from time and place. Course and weekly learning objectives, course content, resources, assignments, peer interaction, and collaboration are the same in the virtual classroom as in the lecture hall. The online education faculty members are the same experts who have conducted the DCR and RCR courses at UCSF for nearly twenty years.
