c4c has created an integrated educational program known as the c4c academy. The c4c academy has been developed jointly by academia and pharmaceutical companies to address best practice in paediatric clinical trials and paediatric medicine development. The c4c academy and training courses are currently only open to c4c beneficiaries. However, we know that there are a number of excellent paediatric training courses available outside of c4c and we do not want to duplicate existing educational resources. To compliment our training offering, we have developed a catalogue which signposts c4c beneficiaries and other interested parties to external courses about paediatric clinical trials and disease specific training to complement our training offer. If you would like to recommend a course for inclusion, please complete this form.
Disclaimer: This purpose of this catalogue is to list available and relevant paediatric training courses. This is in no way an endorsement by c4c for any of the listed courses.
This is an interactive table: you can navigate it using filters to help refine your search.
You can use filters separately or combine them:
- The Target Filter allows you to select resources based on the target audience.
- The Format Filter you can select the type of resources (i.e. video, eBook, guidelines …),
- The Tags Filters allow you to filter resources according to keywords.
