Expanding Victoria’s clinical trial activity calls for a highly trained workforce, capable of meeting increasing demand. The VCCC Development of Clinical Trials Workforce Capacity and Capability Program, has established internships, in partnership with the Parkville Cancer Clinical Trials Unit.
The clinical trial internships provide both theoretical and hands-on learning for two positions of high demand, increasing employability and providing opportunities within the sector.
