Welcome to The Global Health Network Professional Development Scheme. This is a system open to all levels of staff who work on clinical trials and research studies. The scheme has been based upon The Global Health Network and TDR Global Competency Framework for Clinical Research and is a flexible framework which lists all the competencies that should be demonstrated by a research team to carry out a successful study. The framework can be applied to any study, regardless of the size of the team, place, disease focus and type of research. Together with its supporting tools, the framework can be used to plan staffing requirements for a study, to carry out appraisals of staff, to guide career development, and to create educational curricula for research staff.

The Global Health Network Professional Development Scheme provides a comprehensive, high quality mechanism for recording, tracking and guiding training and professional development in the field of clinical research. Read more.
