    If there are ten or more people in your department who are working on CTIMPs (Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products) and require a Refresher at around the same time, we may be able to arrange a departmental training session - at a time and place to suit you. If you think that this would be of use to your department, please select the form below.

    Please note: If you require training on a specific date, please ensure that you request it well in advance - as this will increase the likelihood of a trainer being available.

    If you are not going to be working on any Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products, you might find that the Non-CTIMP course is more relevant to your practice.

    Our open Refresher courses have been accredited 2 CPD points by the Royal College of Physicians.

    The course also meets the minimum criteria for GCP training as set out by the pharmaceutical group Transcelerate.

    Courses as of the 14th of June 2017 will meet the new minimum criteria, in line with the R2 revision to ICH-GCP.

    If you have previously attended one of our courses and require an R2 update, please contact us for a copy of our summary document.


    This course is available for KCL, IoPPN, KCH, Guy’s, St Thomas’ and SLaM staff. This training is supported by the King's Health Partners Clinical Trials Office; therefore there is no charge to delegates.
