Overview of Fastrack Training

Our comprehensive 16-hour Principal Investigator (PI) training will equip you (your practice and/or your hospital) with the fundamental building blocks to serve as a lead investigator in a clinical trial as well as introduce clinical research to your practice. Clinical research is a highly regulated and monitored field. Proper training in ICH GCP and FDA regulations is essential to your success in this industry. Clinical research differs from standard of care in several important ways so we will also teach you how to follow a clinical research protocol and evaluate your clinical research participants. Our training will also provide you insights into clinical trial operations. We will teach you how to get your first trial as a PI, how to introduce this new component to your existing practice, and how you and your patients will benefit dramatically from clinical research as you grow professionally.

Our comprehensive two-day 15 hour curriculum includes the following topics:

Benefits to Your Practice and Your Patients

Contribute to the Future of Medicine The research being conducted today becomes tomorrow’s life-changing and life-saving treatments. Imagine contributing to the cure or prevention of diseases that plague your patients.

Access to Cutting Edge Care Your patients will have access to brand new cutting edge treatments that cannot be prescribed. It is only through clinical trials that your patients can receive this type of care and treatment without cost to them.

Increase Revenue to Your Practice Adding clinical research to your practice can introduce a significant new revenue stream without the hassle of insurance.  Clinical trials sponsored by pharmaceutical companies typically pay from $50,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars for each trial.  Practices that run trials often have 5-10 trials running simultaneously bringing nearly a million dollars in additional revenue to the practice.

Acquire New Skills Through participation in clinical trials, you can learn new skills that can help you advance your career. You can also keep up-to-date on the newest treatments being developed which will allow you to treat your patients with the most cutting edge options.

Enhance your CV Adding clinical trials to your CV is quite valuable in the workplace and for the advancement of your career. If interested, opportunities to author manuscripts and present at meetings could also be available.

Be a Leader in the medical community through your contributions to the future of medicine by working on innovative and cutting edge trials.
