National Taiwan University Hospital Department of Oncology: Clinical Trial Meetings

Status: Completed
Start and End Date: (Fall 2020)
During the fall semester of 2020, I elected to take all my courses virtually while living abroad in Taiwan. I was fortunate to join in on cancer drug clinical trial meetings at National Taiwan University Hospital. The clinical trials are often led by different pharmaceutical companies and partnered with multiple clinical hospitals around the world. I learned about different assessments and decision-making in clinical trial processes.
GC Focus Connection:
Although the clinical trial phases may be different for my GC goal, this was a good learning opportunity for me to observe how decisions are made in clinical trials. I garnered a better understanding in the intricacies of clinical trials from participant selection to end of phase III studies.
