MMS reaches an employee training milestone of 700 pharma industry courses

Canton, Mich. (April 13, 2018) – MMS Holdings Inc. (MMS) – a global, leading clinical research organization – announced today that it has surpassed a training milestone, now with more than 700 training courses available in their learning management system. This platform offers education to all MMS colleagues across North America, Europe, India, and South Africa in a variety of formats from instructor led to self-directed sessions.

Each of the courses has been developed in-house, and expertise in the data sciences and clinical research arenas has led MMS to provide training outside of the organization to research sponsor teams as well. MMS staff provides training to sponsors on New Drug Application (NDA) submissions planning and best practices, as well as clinical trial disclosure topics on a routine basis, among other training.

“One of our most important assets is the people that work at MMS throughout the world, with their data and science–first mindset and unmatched drive to meet our customer’s needs,” said Michelle Gayari, Head of Global Operations, MMS. “From the onset, MMS has been an organization focused on compliance and strength of process, and a key component is supporting each colleague’s need to be continually learning and stretching within this fast-paced industry.”

To further this dedication to education and talent development within the research community and pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, the company created MMS Academy to serve the continuing education needs of students, recent graduates, and current working professionals.

“As an instructor, it is incredibly rewarding to be passing on nearly 30 years of industry knowledge,” said Chris Hurley, Senior Manager, Global Data Operations, Standards and Systems, MMS, and clinical programming instructor, MMS Academy. “Continual learning is a key trait for any effective leader, and we are proud to bring this to the future leaders in pharma.”
Beyond clinical programming, areas of focus include medical and regulatory writing, biostatistics, clinical trial disclosures, pharmacovigilance, use of real world evidence, and more.
