The Clinical Trials Research Associate (CTRA) programs at Durham Technical Community College is excited to announce that many of the CTRA courses are now offered online. The following courses are offered via distance learning:
- CTR 110 Introduction to Clinical Research
- CTR 115 Clinical Research Regulations
- CTR 112 Clinical Research Terminology
- CTR 130 Clinical Research Management
The above coursework plus MAT151 Statistics I and PHI 240 Introduction to Ethics (or statistics and ethics at another institution) meets the course requirements for first certificate of the CTRA program.
All program admission criteria and pre-requisite requirements apply to take these courses and fully accepted program students are given first priority to take all CTRA courses, including those given online. A non-program student may be given special permission by the program director to take CTR 110 Introduction to Clinical Research if there is room in the course and on a discretionary basis.
CTRA online courses meet the same learning objectives as the classroom sections but usually require additional time with outside reading and assignments to meet these objectives.
