Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
Clinovo's new “Advanced Clinical Data Management (CDM)” class is an 8-week training program starting on February 10th, 2014. The class is aimed at Clinical Data Managers (CDMs) with one to two years experience, who are looking to reach the next step in their career and increase their value on the job market. The class will be led by Ken Milstead, who has more than 25 years experience in managing in-house and outsourced paper-based and EDC phase I-IV studies throughout the complete clinical research process (including protocol development, study start-up, database lock, and product approval).
The TechTrainings were created by Clinovo in 2012 to help professionals upgrade their technical skill sets and match employers’ expectations in the clinical trial industry. The various programs available give students the opportunity to practice with real-life pharmaceutical and biotech companies case studies, and learn from instructors with more than 10 years of industry experience. The classes will be held at Clinovo Offices in Sunnyvale (CA), and streamed online.
Taught by Kenneth Milstead, Senior Clinical Data Manager and Project Manager at Clinovo, the new “Advanced Clinical Data Management (CDM)” class will address concepts important for clinical data managers who are currently in (or who plan to move into) management or project management roles that require program-level or company-level interactions. This new TechTraining class will discuss current initiatives and trends affecting Clinical Data Management (CDM). These include working with other functional areas and external vendors, tracking and managing timelines and other resources, and working with special types of data. There will be hands-on demonstrations and exercises to illustrate the CDM concepts learned.
Clinovo will continue to offer the "Base Clinical SAS Programming", the “Advanced Clinical SAS Programming” class, and the “CDISC Standards: Theory and Application” class. The "Base Clinical SAS Programming" class prepares entry-level clinical and statistical programmers for the Base SAS certification. The "Advanced Clinical SAS Programming" class tackles advanced real-world SAS programming challenges. The “CDISC Standards: Theory and Application” class will give an overview of CDISC standards: ODM, SDTM, ADaM and Define.XML. Students will learn how to transform legacy data into these clinical standards through real-life examples. Case studies will include data exchange, archival, and electronic submission to regulatory agencies such as the FDA.
