PPD has developed a DCT certification program to support sites in the DCT space, enabling improved quality and delivery of decentralized trials. Our PPD DCT Network will identify investigators/sites with digital and decentralized capabilities and prepare them through an eLearning program created in collaboration with the Society of Clinical Research Sites (SCRS). Watch the video below to learn more about our DCT Network.
