ACRP Five-Day Boot Camp for Clinical Research Coordinators

The Human Research Protection Program is excited to announce the return of its five-day program for study coordinators which will be held from October 24 - 28, 2022 at the University of Minnesota. Unfortunately, the camp was postponed during the height of the pandemic. We’re very excited to bring the camp back!

Over the years, participants have said they found the interactive activities and curriculum engaging, practical, and all encompassing. One attendee indicated that the immersive experience "provided a chance to learn from real-life situations." Another participant said, “I left with resources, new connections, and a renewed love for my job.” In the three-month post event follow-up, many coordinators reported that they were still applying what they had learned over the summer.

Please share this opportunity with your colleagues, especially study coordinators.

About the Program

The ACRP CRC Boot Camp provides over 50 hours of foundational knowledge specific to the role of the clinical research coordinator (CRC). Facilitated by ACRP professionals, this intensive five-day program allows CRCs to practice what they learn and afternoon activities are structured around typical, real-life scenarios faced by CRCs. Further, the program blends theory and practice to ensure CRCs can immediately and effectively contribute to the ethical conduct of human research.

Apply to Attend the Boot Camp by September 26, 2022

To ensure the quality of the participant experience, the Boot Camp will be limited to 40 attendees with a preference for coordinators with at least one year of coordinator experience at the University or its affiliates (e.g., M Health Fairview, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare).
