New! Orientation to Clinical Research Billing Course (#09155) is available through the LMS

  • Identify steps of the research billing process;
  • Determine what the study team must do to ensure compliance;
  • Your responsibilities for ensuring research billing compliance.

The purpose of the UC Davis Clinical Research Guidebook is to provide a road map to navigate the processes and procedures for conducting clinical research at UC Davis. The Guidebook also serves as reference for investigators and site staff regarding the federal regulations governing clinical research in the United States.

The 2015-2016 Edition of the Guidebook is organized in 12 chapters by content, as opposed to a linear process.  The Guidebook is not meant to be all inclusive; more help is available from the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center, the UC Davis IRB, Health System Compliance  and Health System Contracts – Clinical Trials Contracts

This Guidebook references materials from other sources with references cited whenever possible. Every effort was made to ensure the information is accurate as of the date of the publication.
