Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training

It is Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust policy that all Research Nurses and all staff involved in clinical trials of investigational medicinal products (CTIMPs) complete GCP training. The Trust accepts certification of training done in the last two years.

The Trust has altered its GCP process in line with the current situation as they can no longer run face-to-face training; Epigeum has also introduced a new platform. See below for details.

Full sessions are now online via Epigeum or the NIHR:
  • Epigeum – The access method for the online GCP training has changed. The platform you used previously to register is no longer active. You will now be set up directly by Aslihan Yener ( Once set up, you will receive (i) a confirmation email from R&D with an attached User Guide and (ii) an automated email from Epigeum inviting you to complete your registration profile and activate your account. The course covers 5 modules. Each module has a test with a pass mark of 75%. A certificate is delivered at the end of each course:
    • Course 1: Protocol and Associated Documents
    • Course 2: Application, Agreements and Approvals
    • Course 3: Trial Master Files
    • Course 4: Conducting the trial
    • Course 5: Safety Reporting
