Last March 11, 2017, A research workshop entitled, "Clinical Trials 101: A workshop that will make clinical research your best friend" by Dr. Mara Evangelista and Nick Huber, was held in HR Training Room, 4th Floor, Tower 3 of Makati Medical Center. A total of 43 residents and consultants were present gracing from different institutions such as SLMC, RITM, OM, SCFI, EAMC and MMC.


Dr. Mara Evangelista and Nick Huber, the perfect tandem and keynote speakers of the Research Workshop

This whole day event not only tackled the makings of a good paper, which ranged from making a good case protocol to interpreting trial results, but also involved basic statistics wherein the participants were given exercises per lecture involving computation and identification. 


Residents and Consultants listening intently to the lectures

All in all, the workshop was a success most especially to the residents who are about to begin their own studies. These series of lectures helped clarify different terms and misconceptions about research and gave the residents inspiration and understanding of the significance of clinical trials.
