UCL Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology


Short Courses

The Institute of Clinical Trials & Methodology (ICTM) offer a number of short courses throughout the year, most of which are open to internal staff and members of the public.

In order to both ensure that ICTM staff working on clinical trials are properly trained, and also to share the expertise of our staff with those working on clinical trials outside of ICTM, we offer the following courses:

For Statisticians
For Trial Managers, Statisticians and Clinicians
For Data Managers, Trial Managers and Trial Assistants

The Cancer Research UK and UCL Cancer Trials Centre also run a number of course on clinical trials. Information on these courses can be found on their website under the training section.

If you have any enquiries about our short courses, please contact us at ictm.cpd@ucl.ac.uk.

Feedback on our courses!

“As a Science Communications Officer at the MRC CTU at UCL, a big part of my job is communicating the results of clinical trials to researchers, patients and the public. Because I hadn’t done any statistics training since I was an undergraduate, I decided to complete the ‘Statistics for Non-statisticians' short course to refamiliarise myself with general statistical principles and how they apply to trials. The training involved a mix of talks from statisticians, group discussions and practical activities. I came away from the course with more confidence to interpret statistical analyses of trial results, which helps me communicate these ideas to different audiences.”
