This week-long course is a required component of the Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program. It is taught by UACC faculty. The goal is to provide training for developing investigator-initiated trials. Topics include clinical trial design, trial endpoints, biomarkers, biostatistics, epidemiology, an introduction to "wet lab" methods, biomedical ethics, and a critical review of the literature. The course also provides an opportunity for the attendees to practice oral presentations.
