What is 'Professional Development'? Do You Have a Pathway for Success?
At ACRP, we believe professional development is the intrinsic motivation that comes from within each clinical research professional to recognize his or her responsibility for: safeguarding patient safety; ensuring quality of data; ensuring ethical conduct of clinical trials; ensuring regulatory compliance at all times; and ensuring research projects are completed on time, on target, and on budget.
We support the professional development of clinical research professionals by offering high-quality resources and services that are relevant to the needs, interests, and work of clinical researchers, that are performance-based, and that allow you to own your success in clinical research. And if you're looking for guidance on your professional development, check out ACRP's proprietary Professional Development Pathways for clinical research professionals.
