The master’s in clinical research management at Arizona State University has been preparing students to oversee all stages of clinical trials for health and medical products for the last decade. Now, the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs has accredited the clinical research management program, making it the first in the country to receive this distinction.
Judith Karshmer, Arizona State University’s College of Nursing and Health Innovation Dean, credits the tireless efforts of the faculty and program director, and calls the program the gold standard for academic excellence.
Though clinical research management has only been around for the last 10 to 15 years, ASU was one of the first to apply and receive this accreditation. CAAHEP is the largest programmatic accreditor in the health sciences field.
