I live in Toronto, and I am interested in the clinical research program offered in university or college. By reading the thread here, there is a good one from Humber college. Unfortunately, there is no seat until next September. I also found a new program called "Clinical Research Associate Program" offered by a private college called "Oxford College of Arts, Business & Technology". It is a one year program including 3 months internship.

I can not find more information about this program offered by this college excepted what was said from its website.

Does anybody have more information about this program? Is it worth taking the course (it is about 15,000 CAD)? And can I find a job after the course? I really appreciate if somebody could share some information.

Thanks.

If the institute is promising internship after the program than it is definitely worth. Then you will have both Canadian education and work experience for the future jobs. And most of the time the company that hires you as an intern would offer you a job if you can prove yourself during the internship.

I am deciding between some options and Clinical Research is one of them, I like the program IN Oxford, even though it looks very heavy academic load and we have to be from 9 til 3 pm. The positives things are that is directed by a Physician and that he provides good placements at the end of the course. The people say that with the recession is going to be tough to find stable jobs. The other one is on-line in Mitchener Institute but I don't now if this is good or not ( is 15 months)

this is a good program I was going to be there but I was accepted in a MAster program, But that program is very good, short, not difficult to get into and the director is a Physician that helps you to be in a good placement at the end. It is a private college and some people prefer a public school.

Does anybody have an opinion about the program at the Michener institute. I am considering this option. Are guys RN'S already? I can't afford to go back to school full time. And does anyone know the payscale for Canadians? The US websites say they are around 45-70,000$'S.

Yes, this program is also offered by Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, 200 Consumers Road, Suite 200, North York, Ontario, M2J 4R4. It's a good place to attend the program.

Hi Jay,
Thanks for the response. I did contact them (ASRI) by email. They are located in New Jersey and it seems that the course and the internship is given only there. I was looking for a course in Toronto. I am asking them if they have associates/collaborator in Toronto where I can take the course. Will post as soon as I hear from them.

it is a complete scam. people left and dropped, and the rest of them was driven away by their ridiculous and discriminative final exams. only a few who they (mostly the director herself) like are kept and placed in their own "institute" as instructors and writing fictitious protocols that's never associated with anything in the real world, and the "institute" called it "a paid internship" as their advertisement repeatedly. the salary comes from the tuition of the poor students themselves. the whole thing runs like a parasite, sucking up the money from the students and producing dropouts, fake "certificates" that are not recognized anywhere in the world, and a bunch of useless protocols to be thrown into the trash.

right, you can actually check their trials here:
clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=american+scitech
they started putting up trials since mid 2008. two years had passed, none of the trials had even started recruiting. every single trial was postponed again and again, and finally we have come to an end: red "withdrawn". nice try, ASRI. duh!

don't even hope that you can get anything but lies and brazenness to lie out of that place. they are taking advantage of desperate people just like you and me. keep your eyes open. you are warned, just like we were once warned 2 years ago. but the voice was too little to be noticed at that time...

i am giving you this warning, not because i am some sort of competitor. i am doing this purely out of my outrage towards them. it crushed our (me and my wife's) hope and a bunch of terrible consequences followed. i would bring them to court if i could, and will support anyone who's well organized to do that.

god how could this piece of filthy dirt exist on the surface of this planet. they should be brought down in no time!!

In my opinion, Humber college, Toronto offers a better clinical research program with in built internship and enjoys a very good reputaion in the industry. Statistics say job opportunities are good. Occasionally one might have to hang in there a little longer to land the first job.
