ICTR workforce development encompasses a KL2 Scholars Program, which provides junior faculty with the training, mentorship, and protected time necessary to develop an independent research career; a TL1 Training Program, which trains UW health care professionals and engineering students in the scientific foundations of clinical and translational research; and a Graduate Program in Clinical Investigation, which confers research degrees based on investigations into patient populations or data, specific methods of treating patients, or the clinical tools used to provide treatments. In addition, ICTR offers a variety of non-credit courses, workshops, Summer Research Opportunities, and presentations on specific topics related to clinical and translational research.
As multidisciplinary team science is vital to contemporary research, our programs strive to provide integrated, comprehensive research training not only for faculty scientists, but also for the research nurses, coordinators, fellows, students, and other health professionals who are members of successful scientific teams. Many offerings are available online to provide flexibility to working professionals.
Workshops and Non-Credit Courses encompass topics in clinical and translational research, including career development, Mentor Training, scientific writing, research coordinator training, biomedical informatics, quality improvement, and regulatory affairs. Opportunities include academic education and mentoring for post-doctoral fellows, junior faculty and students, in addition to workshops, Certificate Programs, and on-line presentations for learners at all levels.
