Hi everyone. I need some guidance from all Clinical Research experts. I want to pursue a course : "Masters in Clinical Research : MSCR" offered by ICRI-MUSC. It is a 2 year course, 1st year course by ICRI Global Research and 2nd year course by Medical University of South Carolina. Is this a genuine course or some sort of gamble? Please give your valuable guidance. I have completed my MSc in Biochemistry this year in India.

Yes, clinical research is a growing industry in India at the moment. I am a BSc Biochem and want to make my career in this field. I recently joined James Lind Institute for my clinical research course and I hope to get placed somewhere soon.

There is a need of good clinical researcher professionals as India is going to be major hub of clinical trial industry. This can be achieved by educating medical professionals, researchers and graduates on Good Clinical Practice, Ethical conduct of the trial, discouraging fabrication of data and following timelines.
