The Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency (JTF) has launched its new website: This site hosts the Harmonized Core Competency Framework, as well as the news about the JTF’s latest initiatives, events, and resources.

The Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency (JTF) was convened in 2013 to develop a single set of professional competency standards for clinical researchers worldwide. As such, the group brought together a diverse group of stakeholders representing various roles in the research community. The JTF’s Harmonized Core Competency Framework (Version 1.0) reflects this universality. Since its release in 2014, the Framework has been used across the globe to develop training programs, professional development pathways, job descriptions, and more.

Later in May 2017, the JTF will post the Final Draft of Harmonized Core Competency Framework (Version 2.0) on  for public comment.

We invite you to visit the JTF website to learn more about the JTF and the Framework. Please contact the JTF with questions or to share how you have utilized the framework.
