Training the next generation of clinician scientists.
This institutional-based program provides students access to clinical research training that is appropriate to their career stage and interest level, and can accommodate changing training needs as they progress through pre-doctoral training.
The goal of the Pre-doctoral Clinical Research Training Program is to increase the number of well-trained clinical researchers who will assume leadership roles in the design and oversight of future clinical investigations critical to the overall mission of the NIH. Support may be provided for up to five years, and the program provides early exposure and appropriate training in clinical research for pre-doctoral students enrolled in medical, dental and nursing schools in addition to pharmacy, public health and other allied health disciplines. Students may apply for an advanced degree in a combined program where a clinically-related research master's degree (or doctorate) is given with a health-professional doctoral degree.
The TL1 program at CTSA-funded institutions supports pre-doctoral fellows seeking additional training in clinical research.
The Curriculum Tree provides students, teaching assistants, and instructors with an easy and uniform access to course material and to online instruction tools.
