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.

We know that we’ve developed a quality program that prepares students to do their job and lead at their organizations.

JoAnn Pfeiffer

Director of clinical research management programs

As it turns out, the clinical research management students are just as excited.

“I have been looking for the right master’s program for a while before I committed to the clinical research management, regulatory science program and this news not only confirms that I chose the right degree, but also makes me feel like I am in the right place at the right time. Even after just completing one class, I can already see the growth and value, and I am excited to be part of such a thriving department and program,” student Simona Janisch said.

In total, there were three programs accredited. The master’s in clinical research management, the master’s in clinical research management with regulatory science concentration and the certificate program in clinical research management.

The clinical research management degree can be completed 100% online through ASU Online and the courses are designed for working professionals who are currently working in the field.
