Clinical research is a branch of healthcare science that determines the safety and effectiveness (efficacy) of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment regimens intended for human use. 

Clinical Data Management (CDM) is a critical phase in clinical research, which leads to generation of high-quality, reliable, and statistically sound data from clinical trials. 

SAS is an integrated software suite for Clinical,advanced analytics, business intelligence, data management, and predictive analytics.

Pharmacovigilance also known as drug safety, is the pharmacological science relating to the collection, detection, assessment, monitoring, and prevention of adverse effects with pharmaceutical products.

Why this course ?

Clinical trials are research studies involving people. They test whether particular treatments are safe and how well they work.
Clinical data management ensures collection, integration and availability of data at appropriate quality and cost.
You can use SAS software through both a graphical interface and the SAS programming language, or Base SAS. ... manage and manipulate your existing data to get the data that you need.
The aim of pharmacovigilance is the safer and more effective use of medicines for everyone

A very nice institute to get trained in courses like  PV, CDM clinical SAS. They provide live demonstration of databases and friendly well knowledged staff. I am feeling it's easy after getting trained here and to cope up with my job.




I heard Covalent Trainings is the best institute for Combopack training in Hyderabad. Excellent institute and very knowledgeable faculty! Best Course for Combopack training. After successfully finishing my Combopack course there, I must say it is true, If you are looking for Combopack, then Covalent Trainings is the best choice for you.




First of all, I would like to thank everyone at Covalent Trainings for supporting me in taking Combo Pack that includes Clinical Research, SAS, CDM & PV. I have to say, it was my lifetime best decision. The trainer at Covalent comes from MNC with over a decade of domain expertise.

He has covered real-time scenarios in an awesome manner, due to which I got strong confidence and ability to handle real-time tasks after joining an MNC. Thumbs up to Covalent for accommodating such talent.




I am glad that I have got training from Covalent in Combopack 2. The training went well with real time examples and practices. The trainers are worth, they hold over a decade of working experience in MNCs. Their knowledge and way of training is really worth every penny.
