This outpatient clinic facility has been involved with clinical research for 20+ years. FCR is focused on continuous training supported by a well-established program that documents orientation as well as clinical and laboratory performance assessments. The training program is position-focused and includes study-specific training. The training materials are aligned with CFRs, ICH and GCP guidelines, ensuring that all levels of FCR staff understand compliance with the regulations. Training does not end with a new employee’s orientation, but is an ongoing monthly program giving FCR the leading edge in knowledge and expertise. There are weekly staff internal meetings ensuring cross training and maintaining current updates on study/subject developments. Certifications are available upon request.

Research staff at FCR includes the site manager, certified study coordinators, data entry specialists, patient recruitment specialists, lab technicians, and quality assurance specialists. FCR has written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure that trials are conducted and data are generated, documented, and reported in compliance with the protocol, GCP, confidentiality (including HIPAA) and the applicable regulatory requirement(s). Each employee is required to be trained on the FCR SOPs and ICH-GCP guidelines prior to being assigned a study. In-service training is conducted annually to remind the researcher of proper research techniques, the confidentiality of patients and research protocol, and the importance of minimizing placebo effect in clinical trials. A record of the training in the form of printed certificates is kept on site in the regulatory binders and the staff binders. Staff capabilities include a variety of training with respect to IATA, phlebotomy, and rating scales (SCID, MINI, HAM-D, etc.).


FCR has access to an extensive patient population in all 5 boroughs of New York City, as well as greater New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The population is quite diverse across FCR's psychiatric and neurological patient reach. Patient recruitment utilizes a multifaceted approach through internal databases, referrals, print advertising, digital advertising, community outreach, and, at times, television/radio advertising.


FCR uses a central IRB and is known for strictly observing GCP guidelines, FDA regulations, and protocol criteria while meeting deadlines and maintaining a high patient recruitment and retention rate.
