About

We offer a master degree in Clinical Research Management at the University of North Texas Health Science Center. Clinical research involves the testing and determining the safety and efficacy of new unapproved products, including pharmaceuticals, devices and biologics in human subjects.

Overview

Clinical trials in humans (volunteers and patients) are required before marketing approval by regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

At the University of North Texas Health Science Center we offer a master degree in Clinical Research Management. The law that governs clinical research is spelled out in Chapter 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). In addition to requiring and legislating clinical trials, regulatory authorities define the standards by which clinical trials are to be conducted. These standards are known as Good Clinical Practices (GCPs).

In depth knowledge of the CFR and GCP guidelines as well as international guidelines specifically as they relate to protection of human rights, prevention and detection of fraud and the use of sound scientific principles, is a fundamental requirement for clinical research professionals. These individuals are key personnel involved in the conduct of clinical trials which, in turn, are pivotal in getting new products approved and on the market.

What can I do with a graduate degree in Clinical Research Management?

  • Well-trained clinical research professionals are in high demand. 
  • The tremendous increase in medical technology and information in the last decade has resulted in an explosion of potential new drugs, devices and biologics that must be tested before being released for use by the public. 
  • The profession is constantly challenged to improve and streamline the clinical research programs in order to shorten the development timelines and control the cost for new product development.
