Overview of Clinical & Translational Science Programs

Clinical and translational science (CTS) spans basic biology, clinical medicine, and community health policy to understand and develop new approaches to improving human health. CTS investigators need to appreciate how biologic and non-biologic aspects of health care interact to influence individuals and populations and how to turn those interactions to advantage

The Education, Training, and Career Development Unit has created a novel and flexible plan to facilitate the training and career development of a robust clinical and translational research workforce and to give individuals with diverse backgrounds, working with faculty from many disciplines, an Educational and Career Development Program to prepare them for their roles as important and productive contributors to CTS. Key responsibilities include:

  • Developing and maintaining an innovative educational program in CTS
  • Enlarging and enhancing a cutting-edge career development program in CTS
  • Supporting the next generation of CTS investigators through a predoctoral training program in CTS
  • Enhancing inclusion of underserved populations in CTS programs
