CLRA Program

As the development of new pharmaceuticals, devices and biotechnology products continues to expand, the number and complexity of the clinical trials necessary to gain regulatory approval continues to increase. EMU's Clinical Research Administration program includes both didactic information and hands-on experiences in order to provide qualified new personnel to the clinical research enterprise. It also provides opportunities for professionals participating in the drug/device development process to increase their knowledge base as well as their research/creative skills.

The Clinical Research Administration program offers both a post-baccalaureate certificate in Good Clinical Practices as well as a master's program in Clinical Research Administration. All program specific classes are held on the main campus in Ypsilanti.
