  • To align competency-based efforts (e.g., education, training, and workforce development) across the clinical research enterprise
  • To identify knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are essential for the effective, ethical, and safe conduct of clinical trials
  • To build a framework that can adapt to meet the needs of clinical researchers as the discipline evolves and advances
  • To facilitate the success and development of current and aspiring clinical research professionals
