​The Medical Research Center (MRC) Training Program is a specially designed suite of modules, short courses and workshops for researchers. We offers both on-site taught modules and short courses as well as distance learning units meaning these are accessible to all the researchers in HMC.

The specially designed modules for Good Clinical Practice (GCP), Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), Standard Operating Procedures and short courses will provide the researchers with an introduction to follow the standards of research governance as well as the principles of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) for research as outlined in the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) guidelines and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) GCP. Each module/course is designed to be free standing but there are also a number of advanced modules and short courses which are intended for more experienced researchers.  All our training sessions are designed to help you considerably with aspects of your research, responsible conduct of good research, protection for human subject research and presenting your research results.

The MRC offers a range of interactive learning, informative and training presentations, demos and ‘how to’ videos to improve the online experience. Here you will find useful help and lessons suitable for beginners as well as all those who are interested in human subject research. You can download these resources or watch them online.

In addition to onsite training for the researchers, the Medical Research Center recommends external online training resources that provide valuable information about best practices for research.

ABHATH Training

“Adequate training of a new system pays huge dividends in maximizing utilization of its features and functionality, as well as a high level of comfort and confidence on the part of users.” - Exact Macola

The introduction of new processes or technologies within the organization will affect the current way in which individuals and groups operate and interact. In the same way the implementation of ABHATH in the Medical Research Center (MRC) will change the way jobs are performed, redefine roles and responsibilities or change the structures. The objective of the ABHATH training plan is to enable organizational members and other stakeholders to adapt to our new vision and system, as well as to identify sources of difficulties to the changes and minimize them.

ABHATH training provides one-on-one assistance to the researchers through different sessions within MRC. The support of researchers and their high level of engagement to bring strategy into reality is paramount to the success of the new application. The goal of the ABHATH training process is to provide the HMC research community with the technological knowledge to improve their research activities through MRC.

We know that just submission instructions are not enough to get you familiar with the new system, therefore the MRC is arranging continuous training sessions for the sake of researchers.

All trainings sessions will be held in the “Training Room” located in Medical Research Center, Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City, HMC. Space is limited to 12 participants per session.
