Western's Centre for Continuing Studies is now offering a program in clinical research.
The new program will be offered through the department and is aimed at students who have completed a degree or a diploma in the health sciences.
Moira Wills, co-ordinator of special projects for Western's Centre for Continuing Studies, said the experience is geared toward those individuals looking for a future in pharmaceuticals.
"The students involved in this program will be training for the position of a clinical research co-ordinator," she said.
Wills said the clinical research co-ordinator is in charge of implementing, managing and evaluating the final protocol of various pharmaceutical and drug developments. The program requires students complete six courses, one of which is an elective, within five years while also maintaining a 70 per cent average, she added.
Polls for Board of Governors and Senate elections will be closing today, marking the last chance for students to vote for representation.
"Vote today, it's your last chance to vote for your student leaders in Western's highest governing bodies. Be heard," said Mike Schecter, the Chief Returning Officer of the University Students' Council.
Jeffrey Clayman, legal affairs officer, identified the BOG and the Senate as the two positions that govern every aspect of Western life. He said the BOG deliberates issues such as university buildings, parking, green space and food quality, among other things.
Clayman said the Senate deals with tuition fees, academic programs and code of student conduct. He added elections for BOG and Senate will be going on today and students can vote online at www.usc.uwo.ca.
