Society for Clinical Research Coordination and Management

Welcome to the Society for Clinical Research Coordination and Management (SCRCM)

The Society for Clinical Research Coordination and Management (SCRCM) supports the professional development of Penn clinical research personnel, (i.e. Clinical Research Coordinators, Research Project Managers) and other research staff (i.e. Business Administrators, Research Assistants etc.). In addition, working alongside the Office of Clinical Research (OCR), it strives to optimize the clinical research environment, enhance research compliance and facilitate research conduct.  This is accomplished by: 

  • Improving processes that maximize the quality of research programs, promoting human subject protections and fostering compliance with local, state and federal regulations and University and Perelman SOM policies.
  • Providing a forum for networking and collaboration with peers, and for educating SCRCM members
  • Establishing a platform that enables communication and collaboration among SCRCM members, the broader research community, the University and Health System administration
  • Defining the professional status of our community and promoting the recognition of the profession among SCRCM members, faculty, Penn Medicine (PSOM and UPHS) administration and the University. 

Our Mission

The Society of Clinical Research Coordination and Management represents the clinical research staff at the University of Pennsylvania and promotes their professional development.
