Clinical Research Professionals

What started as a group of research managers sharing processes, ideas, and successes, quickly became a formally recognized community for clinical research professionals across the institution. 

Since 2000, the Clinical Research Professionals (CRP) Group at Cincinnati Children’s has supported innovative, high-quality clinical research by facilitating knowledge exchange and the standardization of best practices. 

As a team, we are committed to promoting and supporting development, education and networking for all CRPs. Our focus is on:

  • Exploring career pathways and advancement opportunities: We advocate for new job roles, and have established formal processes for advancement and research certification reimbursement.
  • Influencing research-related policies and procedures: We communicate new regulatory guidelines and policies, promote best practices and provide educational resources to all CRPs.
  • Accessing new and unique learning opportunities: We host educational lectures featuring prominent speakers from throughout the institution and monthly educational meetings where continuing medical education (CME) credit is offered.
  • Developing leadership skills: In addition to our Leadership Committee, CRPs have an opportunity to join and lead one of three sub-committees: Membership Committee, Education Committee, and Regulatory Committee.

Committed to Our Mission

Each year, we look for new ways to build upon our success. From the establishment of our Appreciation Day and Outstanding CRP Award to fostering new relationships with representatives from the University of Cincinnati, we are dedicated to this community.
