The Development, Implementation and Assessment of Novel Training in Domain-based Competencies, or “DIAMOND” project, is a collaborative effort by the University of Michigan, University of Rochester, Ohio State and Tufts University to provide competency-based education and training to clinical research professionals.  The primary objectives of this project are to develop an online educational portal for competency-based educational offerings and assessments, demonstrate integration of the curriculum in order to promote the most effective and efficient execution of clinical trials, and to disseminate these educational offerings to broader audiences at research institutions across the United States.
