REDCap Drop-in Sessions

Interested in getting help with your REDCap projects? Tufts CTSI now offers free REDCap Drop-In Sessions on Tuesdays from 10:00AM-noon. Sessions are 30 minutes long and are available to all staff and faculty at Tufts CTSI partner and collaborator organizations.

Schedule a drop-in session to discuss any aspect of REDCap that requires expert advice, such as requesting a feature demonstration, making small modifications to a database, or discussing the pros and cons of different database setups. Drop-in sessions are private, so you can discuss real projects and data; they can be either one-on-one or include multiple members of your study team.
