Today, research has become essential to fully exploit the results of clinical activity and to complete one’s professional accreditation. However, it is not easy to communicate effectively, but rigorously, clinical experience and combine research activities with the limited time available to structured personnel.

For this reason, we believe that it is essential to acquire an excellent setting of data collection method and experimental setting, in order to effectively direct all the efforts invested in clinical research.

Already during 2018 and 2019, we proposed a series of informative meetings with doctors, statisticians and expert researchers to guide our Network to deepen the methods for good research.

For 2020, we have chosen to propose this training opportunity also outside the network, and to launch an intensive training course on clinical research: AIMS Academy Clinical Research School.

It is a real “school” that will combine theoretical lessons with parts of practical exercises.

The course is aimed at all postgraduates and specialists of any address who are interested in acquiring the criteria to identify a valid study proposal, think and set up a protocol, understand the tools for analyzing the results, deepen the methodological aspects essential for design and performing a study and finally writing the article effectively and precisely.

We are convinced that this initiative is a valid response attempt for those who feel the need to give structure and order to partially known concepts and to discover or deepen unknown but essential aspects.

The next edition will take place on 28-30 April 2021, in an intensive session of three consecutive days for a total of 24 hours.
