The Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency (JTF) aims to:

  • To develop a universally applicable, globally relevant competency framework for clinical research professionals

  • To align competency-based efforts (e.g., education, training, and workforce development) across the clinical research enterprise

  • To identify knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are essential for the effective, ethical, and safe conduct of clinical trials

  • To build a framework that can adapt to meet the needs of clinical researchers as the discipline evolves and advances

  • To facilitate the success and development of current and aspiring clinical research professionals

  • To align stakeholders across the clinical research enterprise—including academia, industry, government, non-profits and professional societies
