Customized Career Development Platform (CCDP)

At the Institute for Clinical Research Education, we discovered significant nationwide interest in our online customized career development platform. We plan on disseminating it broadly after testing its effectiveness.

Why use this career development tool?

Research shows that people who set and track progress toward meeting career goals are more likely to achieve them. The CCDP is a web-based career planning platform designed to facilitate this with a variety of exciting features! You can learn more about the importance of individualized development plans here.

The CCDP enables trainees to:

  • Strategically plan their careers
  • Link their career goals with competencies
  • Interact with their mentors while planning their career goals
  • Adjust the timeline for their milestones as needed
  • Track their success

Contact Us if you have questions about the CCDP or if you are interested in learning more about the platform.
