HCCA's Healthcare Research Compliance Academy is a three-and-a-half-day intensive training program designed to help attendees increase their ability to manage effective research compliance programs. Our faculty of experts provides guidance and insights on many areas that affect research compliance professionals on a day-to-day basis, including emerging risks and solutions.

Unlike larger conferences, the Healthcare Research Compliance Academy offers attendees a classroom-style, hands-on approach to learning that encourages small-group interactions and networking opportunities. Attendees can also earn the live continuing education units (CEUs) required to sit for the optional Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® exam on the last day.
