Clinical Supplies Foundation


Clinical Supplies “Foundations” Course

This course is for clinical supplies folks who are new to the industry. The goal of this course is to provide the foundational knowledge of the clinical supply chain and how it fits into drug development.

Our goal is to provide a high-energy interactive and practical training program that helps create, or fill in, foundational knowledge about the clinical supply chain from beginning to end.

Application of the course concepts will be achieved through presentations, workshops, case studies, life experiences, and lively interaction between the instructors and participants.

Upon completion of the course, each participant will be able to explain the Clinical Supply Chain, where they fit into it, how their role is essential, and how it interacts with other departments, companies and stakeholders.  Once they learn this, when they return to their jobs, they will be able to perform at a higher, and more effective level.

Our ultimate objective is to have each of our attendees return to their organizations with the knowledge, skills and drive to be an even greater asset to your team.​
