CTEP Program Descriptions

The Clinical and Translational Education Program (CTEP) offers the option of three tracks for enrollment, namely an Advanced Certificate in Clinical & Translational Investigation (CTI), a Certificate in Clinical Research Methodology, and a Master of Science Degree in CTI. The Advanced Certificate track is comprised of a wide array of core curriculum classes in clinical research that are semester based within one academic year. The MS Degree track builds on the first year of the Advanced Certificate curriculum, and during the second year, provides clinical research experience through a mentored clinical research project conducted on the CTSC. Supplementary to the core curriculum, scholars pursue specific clinical interests through electives.

The Certificate in Clinical Research Methodology is structured as modular seminar series over the course of two years. Additional information about the Certificate Programs can be found here.

CTEP also offers two training awards, TL1 Training Award and KL2 Scholars Award, which combine mentored research with classroom training while providing salary funding to support protected time for research on the part of the trainees.

We encourage physicians, PhDs, nurses, and other health professionals with an interest and commitment to clinical research, and who desire a strong foundation in knowledge and skills in clinical investigation, to apply. Information on the application process can be found here.
