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. 

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 ?

This helps to produce a drastic reduction in time from drug development to marketing.  Team members of CDM are actively involved in all stages of clinical trial right from inception to completion.
The information collected during the pre-marketing phase of a medical drug is inevitably incomplete with regard to possible adverse reactions, Pharmacovigilance is needed in every country.

I recently completed my CDM course from Covalent Trainings, Hyderabad.

Their training was very practical and covers most of the corporate scenarios. The best part is that now
I understood how this technology contributes to the major projects.




Covalent Trainings is a perfect blend of Very efficient Trainers, immediately reachable Management Team.
I have taken SAS and Tripack courses as a part of Training got an opportunity to participate in projects as well. Combination of these two gave me an overall view and good knowledge, helped in finding an opportunity to proceed further in the field of clinical data analysis and Management.Trainers are very experienced, enthusiastic in helping out in learning challenges, provided very informative material, real-time projects which helps to easily achieve the role desired by you. Also administrative team is very responsive, reachable and plan the course timings as per Candidates availability, which makes easy to plan also for participants from abroad irrespective of their timings.
I strongly recommend this institute for everyone 👍




Excellent realtime training on Tripack. I got a very clear understanding and confidence after the course, I strongly recommend Covalent Trainings & CDM is very understanding subjet.




I strongly recommend Tripack that includes Clinical Research, CDM & Pharmacovigilance, it’s a best choice if you want to enter into this industry. Faculty & staff are very supportive. I liked their job-oriented real-time training, that covers almost all real time scenarios, simply superb.
