The mission of the K30 Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) is to identify, recruit, train and mentor residents, fellows and junior faculty (MD, PhD, DDS) for careers in clinical and translational research and academic medicine. Participants in the CRTP encompass the entire spectrum from basic, translational science to patient-oriented clinical practice therefore; opportunities for bench scientists to work alongside clinicians are plentiful.
The K30 CRTP is one year consisting of a didactic curriculum concentrating in Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Clinical Trials Design, Data Management & Informatics, Legal, Ethical and Regulatory Issues in Research, Molecular Medicine and Genetics, Experimental Clinical Research, Grant Writing and a weekly Seminar Series. Over the course of the year, students will develop and refine their own research projects and, at the culmination of the program, present them at the CRTP Annual Research Symposium. Upon successful completion of the CRTP course work, participants will receive an Advanced Certificate in Clinical Research.
The CRTP's past participants have enjoyed a high rate of success in having their work published in peer reviewed journals and several participants have applied for, and received, their own grant funding.
