Programme content

Obligatory modules

The obligatory modules consist of an introductory chapter, as well as chapters on legislation and regulations, design and execution of the research, organization, and assessment in research. In the final obligatory module you have the option to put your gained knowledge in practice.

In-depth modules

The in-depth modules consist of chapters on research with medicinal products, including future legislation for the ECTR in cooperation with the DCRF, research with medical devices, WMO-research and non-WMO research.


The course will be concluded by a practical module. Here, you can test your knowledge in a self test accompanied by a case to prepare for the final exam. The final exam and the Center-Specific Meeting (CSB) are part of the full eBROK® course, but will be provided separately by the EMWO and university medical centers respectively.

After successfully completing the exam, as well as participating in a CSB, you will be awarded with your certificate. This certificate proves that you are in possession of the latest knowledge in the field of clinical research and it can be extended through continuous registration.

Continuous registration

The modules necessary to attain re-registration consist of brushing up your knowledge, testing yourself and putting your skills to the test in a case study.

Successful completion of these modules will result in a renewed certificate. In addition, you keep access to the latest news and continuous, recent field information to ensure that your knowledge in the field of clinical research remains up-to-date.
