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, and a KL2 Scholars Program.

TL1 Postdoctoral Training Program - NEW - Due March 6, 2017
The goal of the ICTR TL1 Postdoctoral Program is to train individuals holding professional doctoral degrees, facilitate differentiation/specialization of participants along various contemporary clinical and translational pathways, and prepare them for academic development supported by training grants, career development awards, or other types of extramural funding.
All applicants must currently hold a non-tenure track faculty series title (CHS, Clinical track), have that appointment by the time of the award (July 1, 2017), or have a departmental commitment to a faculty appointment upon completion of the TL1 Post-Doctoral Award.
NOTE: Funding of this program is contingent upon the successful renewal of the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award.

It builds on existing, strong clinical and translational training programs in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Nursing, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, and the College of Engineering.
All trainees are students earning a PhD in one of the ICTR Graduate Programs. Graduate programs administered by ICTR include the MS in Clinical Investigation, the PhD in Clinical Investigation (PhD CI), and the PhD in Clinical Translational Science (PhDCTS).
Trainees earn a stipend, health insurance, tuition and fees, and a travel allowance. They participate in biennial mentor meetings attended by ICTR leadership and monthly writing workshops.
