Medidata Professional Certification Program Reaches 200,000 combined Rave Certified Clinical Research Coordinators and Principal Investigators

Reading Time: 2 minutes

In April, the Medidata Professional Certification Program reached a major milestone—200,000 combined Rave Certified Clinical Research Coordinators (CRC) and Principal Investigators (PI) for Medidata’s Rave Electronic Data Capture Solution. This number represents 200,000 investigators and coordinators who elected to be formally certified when they completed their Rave Electronic Data Capture Solution eLearning and testing. This large number of optional certifications is a reflection of the dedication of our site users, the high quality and reliability of Rave and its support services, and our close relationship with our sponsors and partners. Medidata has the market-leading electronic data capture solution that supports studies of any size, length, or complexity and has been proven by more than 17,000 studies (one-third ongoing today) and more than 4 million patient experiences.

Medidata introduced the Rave Certified Site User program for investigators and coordinators in October 2009, and the program has maintained significant momentum ever since. It reached 50,000 certifications in October 2015; 100,000 in July 2017; 150,000 in November 2018; and now 200,000 in April 2020. Medidata is grateful to our customers and partners for their participation.
