Seminar Series

The CRC sponsors monthly seminars for faculty, staff, residents, and students who are interested in clinical research. A variety of research topics have been presented in areas such as outcomes research, statistics, and training, as well as research techniques in molecular biology, exercise physiology, pediatric aids, cardiology, cancer, and dentistry.

The CRC Seminar Series is an approved Continuing Medical Education (CME) activity (1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ may be obtained per seminar). With prior approval from the speaker, seminars can be viewed via live web streaming (i.e., viewed only during the live presentation) and on-demand (i.e., anyone, anywhere, at any time, can view the presentation). Please note: To receive CME credit, attendees must attend the live, in-person lecture.
