Professional Qualified Status for Clinical Data Managers

Established over 30 years ago, the ACDM (Association for Clinical Data Management) represents professionals working in the management of clinical data. They have been at the forefront of changes in all aspects of the management of clinical data in clinical trials. ACDM has a large, diverse membership and aims to lead the development and appreciation of the essential activities of those working in the sector. They represent and support professionals involved with managing, capturing, handling and designing methods to collect clinical data from within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and academic research fields.

IAOCR’s relationship with ACDM is focused on the common goal of

developing international standards for the clinical data management profession

Regulators and sponsors are increasingly requiring evidence of competence – evidence of experience and training alone are often not sufficient. Whether you’re starting out in your career or already have a number of years’ clinical data management experience, the ACDM Qualified Clinical Data Manager accreditation in partnership with IAOCR is the symbol of competence and professionalism across the sector. Programs are mapped to the International Standard Classification of Education Framework developed by UNESCO and professionals passing the programs achieve internationally recognizable learning credits and accumulate CPD/CPU points.

ACDM delivers three highly-interactive programs for data management professionals at various stages in their career:

LEVEL ONE – Clinical Data Management – Fundamental Skills

LEVEL TWO – Clinical Data Management – Technical Skills

LEVEL THREE – Clinical Data Management – Project Leadership Skills
