Courses Begin September 2021
The CTSC Master's Degree Program is comprised of a didactic curriculum of core and elective courses and a mentored clinical research project. During the first year, trainees work with their mentors to develop and refine their research project. In the second year trainees will utilize the skills acquired from the didactic curriculum to conduct their research project, at 75% time and effort (50% minimum for surgeons).
Research projects must have a translational or clinical research focus. Pre-clinical studies should have near-term potential to translate into patient-oriented research. Emphasis is placed on precision medicine, drug discovery, targeted therapeutics, biomarkers, device development and novel technologies, LGBTI health needs, underserved populations, community health outcomes, pediatric and women’s health studies, life course studies of diseases, and studies incorporating biostatistical methodologies and design.
Investigators from all disciplines –pre-clinical, clinical and translational—are welcome to apply. Individuals from underrepresented groups, disadvantaged backgrounds and/or with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
The goal of the Clinical & Translational Education Program (CTEP) is to educate and train highly motivated individuals to become successful, independent clinical and translational (C/T) investigators with a strong foundation in the knowledge and practical skills necessary to conduct C/T team research across disciplines and institutions.
Upon submission to the online application module ePar, your application will undergo review based on several Application Review Criteria.
