New Investigator Clinical Trials Course (registration now open)

he New Investigator Clinical Trials Course (NICTC) is an important component of the NCIC Clinical Trials Group mandate to provide and facilitate investigator education and training. The major goal of this three-day course is to familiarize new investigators from across the country with the essentials of clinical trial conduct in the Canadian research environment.

The 2015 New Investigator Clinical Trials Course marks the fifth biennial year of the Course, which was founded in 2007. The next NICTC is scheduled for August 12-14, 2015 at the Donald Gordon Centre in Kingston. Applications are now being accepted.

Participants must be trainees/fellows and junior faculty members in their first five years of staff appointment in medical, hematologic, radiation and surgical oncology programs from across Canada.

Applicants are asked to provide a current curriculum vitae and their research interests as they relate to clinical trials, and to provide feedback on the draft agenda and suggestions for additional topics. The selection process will be based on the need for broad representation of the different subspecialties, and geographical distribution from across Canada.

Successful applicants will receive support from the NCIC CTG for travel and accommodation. Course material including faculty biographies, presentations, and session bibliographies will be made available to course participants on the NCIC CTG website.
