The Mayo Clinic Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) offers a wide range of workforce development topics to anyone interested in learning more about clinical and translational research. This includes physicians, scientists, nurses, clinical research coordinators, and others working in clinical or research roles.
Each module can be completed in less than an hour. Many are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 continuing medical education (CME) credits.
All classroom-based courses and online modules are available without charge to Mayo Clinic staff and students. People from outside Mayo Clinic have access to the online modules, though there is a $20 fee per credit per module if AMA PRA Category 1 credit is desired.
Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) orientation
CRC orientation is designed to provide tools and structure to assist with the important process of onboarding new CRC hires. This 10-day orientation consists of approximately 20 hours of online modules, 20 hours of facilitated topics and activities, and 40 hours of on-the-job training.
The new CRC hires will be part of a cohort that meets daily from 8 to 10 a.m. for facilitated topics and activities. The remainder of the time will be spent either participating in online modules or in mentored on-the-job training.
CRC orientation objectives:
- Provide overview of basics of clinical research
- Introduce resources for support and coordination of protocols
- Allow employees to experience their work unit right away and build connections and context
