The Course

Do you want to work SMARTER not HARDER? This course is focused on the needs of a clinical researcher and is a very practical course with exercises and methods to build and develop the core soft skills to allow you to work more efficiently and increase your productivity.

Oftentimes issues arise due to communication breakdown. We look at how information should flow within project teams and examine when different types of communication are most effective.
