We have been conducting various training programs in Health Research Methods for physicians and researchers from various backgrounds. We started with a NIH grant in 2009 for 5 years, and continued thereafter.

In the last 13 years we have trained over 1,900 health professionals including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, ethics committee members, industry professionals, post graduate students, study coordinators, regulatory officials and health policy makers from India and 11 countries in 24 different courses.

In this intense RCT course there are 23 interactive lectures, 4 journal clubs on different RCT designs, 4 Zen protocol sessions and 4 project presentations. All participant presentations are made in small groups with feedback from peers and faculty.

The course is on-campus and some international faculty may take their session online via Zoom.

The course book with relevant course details and important scientific papers will be given to the registered participants.

Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
