Drawing on the principles of Good Clinical Practice (GCP), the GCP Basic Training course teaches participants how to conduct effective patient-oriented research. The course introduces participants to the ethical aspects of clinical research, and comprehensively explores a range of GCP topics in accordance with international guidelines and the Swiss Human Research Act (HRA).

The GCP Basic Training course is aimed at study coordinators, investigators, monitors, directors of studies and study nurses. Our GCP training has been certified by Swissethics, the Swiss ethics committees for research involving human subjects, and has been accredited by SwAPP and SIWF/FMH (advanced training) (6 credit points per day).

With this course, Hirslanden is making a significant contribution to the promotion of clinical research in Switzerland.

Swissethics has fixed detailed requirements for GCP courses according to international guidelines (ICH-GCP (E6)). Under the legal framework, all directors of studies must provide proof of adequate, up-to-date GCP training (certificate). Swissethics also recommends corresponding proof of training for other study personnel. External sponsors, such as pharmaceutical companies and medical product manufacturers, also usually require appropriate GCP training for all study team members.
