Certified Research Specialist Program (CRS)

The CRS Program provides essential training in key areas for individuals involved in, or interested in learning more about, research at UAMS.

Certified Research Specialists complete 28 hours of coursework and pass a comprehensive CRS Proficiency Exam.

There is no charge for participating in the program.

We present new and continuing Certified Research Specialists with their formal certificates at the annual CRS Awards Ceremony each January.
