ERMS Training

Emory Research Management System (ERMS) is a course offered by the Office for Clinical Research to instruct clinical research staff on how to navigate ERMS and how to work with the different modules, e.g., study, subject, and visit tracking modules.  The course is an instructor-led demonstration and simulation. Students participate in, practice and complete modules within ERMS. For more information about ERMS, visit the ERMS web page at No renewal required.  As needed, a refresher of ERMS is highly recommended as new modules are updated.

Note: Training is required to gain access to a study in ERMS. The course is for faculty and staff who will be enrolling subjects and tracking subject's visits.
