Sponsored by the MGH Division of Clinical Research, Partners Human Research Committee and Partners Human Subjects Quality Improvement Program

Good clinical practice (GCP) is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, recording and reporting human subjects’ research. GCP guidelines define the roles and responsibilities of the IRB, investigator, and sponsor as well as describe the essential documents needed for the conduct of a study. Compliance with GCP assures that the rights, safety, and welfare of subjects are protected and that the data produced from the research are credible.

After completing this training the learner will have a comprehensive understanding of GCP and be able to apply those practices to the conduct of clinical research.
