Clinical Research Education Series (CRES)

Clinical Research Education Series (CRES)

What is CRES?

The ITHS CRES is a continuing education and networking series for research coordinators and other research staff interested in clinical research topics. Currently, CRES events are 90-minute virtual events which mix didactic and interactive elements.

(Before COVID, 2-hour in‐person events were held between Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s, and the University of Washington. The first half of each event focused on the presentation of a clinical research topic area, with the second half featuring networking and interaction with fellow attendees to discuss presentation points, exchange ideas, and share experiences.)


Who should attend CRES?

CRES is designed for research professionals of all levels of experience who perform research coordination duties in the health sciences fields at:

  • Fred Hutch
  • Harborview Medical Center
  • Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
  • Seattle Children’s
  • University of Washington
  • Institutions throughout the five‐state WWAMI region

Are there options for off‐site coordinators?

Coordinators from any location are welcome to register for and attend our current slate of virtual events.

(Before COVID, CRES was an in‐person event hosted in Seattle. The continuing education part of CRES was webcast live for off‐site participants. We also post handouts on the ITHS website to prompt reflections and to facilitate networking conversations offline.)
