PCMG runs at least 3 workshops each year to bring members (or their deputised work colleague) together with expert leaders to explore and share dimensions of best outsourcing practice or issues that impact outsourcing and procurement in clinical development including:
These events are limited to Pharma members or non-members from Pharma (a £175 fee is charged for non members that can be deducted against full annual membership). A CRO may be invited to join the workshop when they can provide expert insight and support to the workshop topic.
PCMG is has developed and run 3-star accredited Outsourcing Essentials training courses, which provides a very high quality, two-day, interactive event run by highly experienced industry professionals. These course imparts vital knowledge for aspiring or newly appointed Outsourcing Managers or any Clinical Development staff involved in vendor search, selection, contracting, negotiation and oversight. The collaboration with IAOCR, the accrediting organization for the international clinical research industry, has produced a high quality, competence-based training events which have been over subscribed since inception and receives outstanding feedback from past trainees. This course is available to PCMG members at a discounted rate and to non-members including employees from CROs and other service providers.
ADVANCED OUTSOURCING TRAINING course was launched in 2019 to build on the competences for outsourcing and procurement professionals and is also open to Pharma / biotech staff AS WELL AS CRO/service provider employees. As a guide, we ask that delegates have approximately 2-3 years relevant experience to get the most from this course. Completion of the Essentials course is not required for registration for the Advanced course.
The training courses are run on a not for profit and are delivered by a small team of experienced outsourcing/procurement experts who are able to tailor the delivery of the material to meet the needs and interests of the delegates. In addition the numbers for each course is limited to allow for a high quality learning experience, representing outstanding value of money.
