Clinical Research is a component of medical and health research that focuses on understanding human disease to aid in the prevention and treatment of illness and for promoting good health.

The Graduate Programs in Clinical Research were established to provide a professional and structured clinical research training program for biomedical science graduates and health professionals, with an emphasis on applying research within a clinical context.

The Graduate Diploma builds on the fundamentals of clinical research methodology and ethical responsibilities delivered as part of the Graduate Certificate, by teaching participants how to manage and apply their research through project management and knowledge translation. Participants also have the opportunity to undertake advanced study in an elective stream (25 credit points) of their choice - clinical oncology, clinical neuroscience and imaging, eHealth/bioinformatics, advanced clinical trial methodology or a project in clinical research.
