Campbell University and Durham Technical Community College have established the US state of North Carolina’s first transfer opportunity programme (TOP) in clinical research.

The agreement is expected to address the increasing demand for advanced clinical research education and qualified candidates seeking employment.

Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences Clinical Research interim chair and associate professor Dr Charles Carter said: “The Transfer Opportunity Program in clinical research is in response to industry needs.

“There are more employment openings than there are personnel to fill them, and our institutions are committed to training qualified and competent professionals to meet the increasing demand.”

Established last month, the TOP agreement enables students to transfer between two of Durham Tech’s associate of applied science programmes and Campbell University’s bachelor of applied science (BAS) in clinical research programme.

BAS is the result of partnership between Campbell University and Durham Tech. It is offered exclusively at the Campbell University’s Raleigh location.

Carter added: “Durham Tech recognised the need to provide a pathway for its community college graduates to continue their educational journeys and earn more advanced degrees in clinical research,”

“Campbell offers the BAS in Clinical Research at the Raleigh location as well as its long-standing Bachelor of Science in Clinical Research on its main campus and a Master of Science in Clinical Research, which is a 100% online programme.”

The partners are active participants in the Consortium of Academic Programs in Clinical Research (CoAPCR).
