The Clinical Trial Master File Essentials

The Trial Master File (TMF) is one of the most common areas for critical and major inspection findings.This online course covers the key requirements of the TMF.
It is suitable for all those involved with clinical trials who are generating and maintaining trial documents.

The course is based on known inspection findings and the European Medicines Agency guideline on the Trial Master File and takes around 1-hour to complete
It has both read-only and narrated tracks.

The course is packed with interactions to maintain interest and to enhance the learning experience.
