The Global Health Network offers free short eLearning courses in different aspects of clinical research, in multiple languages.

These courses, written by global research experts who have shared their face-to-face courses for wider dissemination online, are available in the Global Health Trials' elearning centre. The idea is that they are free, practical courses which will quickly and simply teach you about a particular step or process of clinical research. They are low bandwidth and can be downloaded and taken offline, if you wish. The quiz at the end of each course is the only part that must be taken online.

You can access the eLearning centre here:

Courses are available in the following:
1. Introduction to Clinical Research
2. ICH Good Clinical Practice
3. The Research Question
4. The Study Protocol: Part one
5. The Study Protocol: Part two
6. Data Safety Monitoring Boards for Clinical Trials
7. Introduction to Informed Consent
8. Introduction to Data Management For Clinical Research Studies
9. Introduction to Collecting and Reporting Adverse Events in Clinical Research
10. Introduction to Reviewing Genomic Research
11. Basic Malaria Microscopy
12. The Retrospective Treatment Outcome Study for Traditional Medicines

And more courses are being added all the time. All those who score over 80% in the quiz at the end of each course gain a certificate, which you can then download from your profile whenever you need it.

Global Health Trials has teamed up with Translators Without Borders, the not-for-profit translation group, to translate the courses into numerous languages. If you need a translation but don't see it in the list, let us know!

    I have done my GCP course online but yet still i have not received my certificate.

  • GHN_Editors The Editorial Team 27 Mar 2015

    Dear Alimamy

    All the courses off an automatic certificate which can be downloaded from your profile - but you have to score over 80% in the quiz to achieve it. If you didn't score 80%, you can retake the quiz so as to achieve your certificate - simply click on the link for the quiz page again.

    I hope that helps, please do let us know if you have further problems.
    Kind regards
