Over the past several years, the landscape of clinical investigation has undergone dramatic changes. New tools have transformed the magnitude and scope of clinical investigation and changes in regulatory practices have altered how we conduct these studies. To prepare clinical investigators for the challenges that lie ahead, the Harvard Catalyst Advanced Curriculum Compendium (ACC) has been developed to provide clinical investigators with opportunities for continuing education in clinical investigation beyond the introductory level.

Through a searchable online catalog, the Advanced Curriculum Compendium offers educational opportunities to learn new methods or update existing clinical investigative skills. The compendium consists of lectures, seminars, and courses that target core competencies fundamental to successful clinical investigation that include:

Assessment of Drugs
Clinical Trials and Design
Devices and Biologics
Genetics and Genomics
Human Research Policies and Regulatory Affairs
Professional Development
Research Tools
Study Coordination and Management
Data Management
Grant Writing
Human Subjects Research Protection (IRB)
Research Management
Scientific Communication
Team Leadership

Many of these educational offerings have been developed by the clinical research programs at the Harvard-area hospitals and are open to members of the Harvard community.

All available courses offered by participating Harvard schools, affiliated healthcare centers, and Harvard Catalyst are searchable by course location, date, and keywords through the compendium. For all affiliated healthcare centers and institute courses, initial allocation of seats will be reserved for individuals from the home institution where the course is being offered. All other interested individuals with a Harvard login or HMS eCommons ID will be put on a waiting list. One week prior to the start of the course, wait-listed individuals will be selected for course participation on a first-come first-served basis.

Current Participating Institutions:

  • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Boston Children's Hospital
  • Brigham and Women's Hospital
  • Countway Library of Medicine
  • Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
  • Massachusetts General Hospital

Please note: Some of the courses, lectures, and seminars within the compendium require payment. This payment is made to the institution providing the course and not to Harvard Catalyst.
