Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is the ethical and scientific basis for the planning, preparation, conduct and reporting of clinical trials. GCP defines the principles for any clinical trial conducted with medicinal products. GCP has been introduced by ICH (International Council on Harmonization) in 1997 and was just recently revised.

The seminar will include presentations with a lot of practical examples as well as workshops on the most important topics of GCP. The trainer will focus on the responsibilities of the study sponsor (e.g. pharmaceutical or biotech company) but will also cover those elements that are of importance for the investigational team at the study site, i.e. at the hospital or private practice.

According to local law (§ 11 Berliner Bildungsurlaubsgesetzes BiUrlG) educational leave applies.
