Abbott Joins Women’s Advocacy Group to Launch Researcher Diversity Program
In an effort to increase the diversity of physicians engaging in clinical research, Abbott and Women as One, a nonprofit, have launched a program to train female and underrepresented physicians to conduct clinical trials.
The training program, dubbed CLIMB Research, offers physicians a blend of case reviews, guest lectures, group discussions and lessons on good clinical practice, protocol oversight, IRB reporting, safety management and practical applications in the clinical research environment.
The program is initially focused on interventional cardiology and is open to women, Black, Hispanic, Native American, Asian, South Asian and nonbinary cardiologists, the pair said.
