Institutional Clinical Research Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

Clinical Research Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) serve as a core set of procedures for research teams and outline uniform best practices. SOPs support quality, efficiency, and compliance across the entire Virginia Commmonwealth University/Virginia Commonwealth University Health clinical research enterprise. These SOPs were developed in accordance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and international quality standards.

These core SOPs are available as a downloadable resource for adaptation at other institutions and are comprised of 51 separate SOPs divided into six categories (Administrative, Start Up, Regulatory, Investigational Products, Conducting Clinical Studies and Study Close Out).
