The Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency (JTF) is an international team of investigators, educators and clinical research professionals that are committed to providing researchers with guidance and tools to ensure the professional competency of all members of the research team. The “wheel” diagram represents the JTF Competency Framework which consists of 8 Competency Domains. Clicking on each domain at the left will show the specific competency statements which detail the core competencies required at the Basic, Skilled and Expert levels, to conduct safe, ethical and effective clinical research.
