Clinician Scientist Training Workshop 2021 for Veterinary Residents
The goal of this workshop is to provide entry-level skills in designing veterinary clinical research studies. This one-and-a-half day short course is aimed at clinical residents in any veterinary specialty. Clinical instructors are also welcome, if their goal is entry-level exposure to clinical research skills.
Topics include framing a research question, choosing the best study design, basic statistical analyses, grantsmanship, and tips for abstract presentations and manuscript writing.
The School of Veterinary Medicine, UW-Madison, organizes this workshop, in collaboration with the CTSA One Health Alliance and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Institute for Clinical and Translational Research
Dates: Saturday October 23rd – Sunday October 24th 2021
Location: Fluno Center, 601 University Avenue, Madison WI
There is no cost for current veterinary residents to attend. Resident registration fees are subsidized in full by generous donations from our sponsors.
We will also be videoconferencing the Workshop to resident training sites on the east and west coasts that are not within reasonable driving distance of Madison, WI. The full list of videoconferencing sites will be coming soon.
Final agenda – coming soon!

What ethical and scientific quality standards should be considered in designing, conducting, recording, and reporting veterinary clinical studies?
This 75-minute online training course is intended to introduce Veterinary Good Clinical Practices (vGCP) and geared towards any individual involved in the design, conduct, monitoring, recording, auditing, analysis and reporting of clinical studies in veterinary patients. Compliance with vGCP assures transparent data collection, humane treatment of veterinary patients, and integrity of data collected. Each module provides you with key definitions and methodological insights to keeping the premise of data integrity and quality of veterinary study operations.
This course covers the design, conduct, monitoring, recording, auditing, analysis and reporting of clinical studies that involve veterinary patients (client owned animals) as outlined in the VICH GL9 guidance document. While compliance with VICH GL9 is not mandatory, following the standard practices outlined in this course provides transparency regarding data collection methods, ensures humane treatment of treatment of veterinary patients, supports integrity/reliability of data collected. Each module provides you with key definitions and methodological insights to keeping the premise of data integrity and quality of veterinary study operations.
Who should take this course
Any veterinary researchers, research nurses/veterinary technicians, study coordinators or other relevant stakeholders are strongly encouraged to access part or all of this course according to their interest and/or knowledge gap. Those who complete 80% of the course content and pass the associated quiz will receive a Course Completion Report endorsed by The Clinical and Translational Science Award One Health Alliance (COHA) and Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). This Certificate is one of few specialized GCP trainings available that addresses regulatory guidance associated with the conduct of veterinary clinical trials. You may present this certificate as evidence of vGCP training to your study sponsor or other relevant regulatory entities.
