The overall aim of ICTR Career Development awards is to develop a diverse and multidisciplinary clinical and translational research workforce. Awardees and their research mentors reflect the scope of the ICTR partners. While scholars are drawn primarily from the UW Schools of Medicine & Public Health, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine, the College of Engineering, and Marshfield Clinic, successful applicants have been affiliated with almost all of the UW-Madison schools and colleges. Programs include a TL1 Pre-Doctoral Award, a TL1 Post-Doctoral Award, a KL2 Scholars Program, and the AHEAD Pilot Award. In addition to these offerings, ICTR also supports Certificate Programs in Fundamentals of Clinical Research and Clinical and Community Outcomes Research.
