HCCA's Health Care Research Compliance Academy is a three-and-a-half-day intensive training program focuses on compliance issues related solely to research. Its faculty is made up of experts in the field. With a wide range of research-related issues becoming hot topics with enforcement agencies, these academies provide attendees with the opportunity to get information on many areas that affect research compliance officers and their staff on a day-to-day basis.

 A small audience encourages hands-on educational techniques, small group interaction, and networking. Attendees gain comprehensive knowledge of the following:  

  • Scientific Misconduct
  • Research Compliance Hot Topics & Watch List
  • Privacy and Security Issues in Research
  • Research Billing
  • Human Research Protections
  • FDA-Regulated Research
  • Research Documentation and GCP
  • Data Safety and Monitoring Issues
  • Conducting a Research Risk Assessment
  • Animal Research   

Who should attend? 

  • Chief compliance officers
  • Compliance specialists
  • Research auditors
  • Clinical research compliance officers
  • Research and compliance directors
  • Compliance analysts

Academies are limited to 75 participants and typically sell out several weeks, if not months, in advance. Consequently, we encourage prospective attendees to enroll as early as possible.
