Clinical/Translational Research Training Track Pilot Program Overview
CARTI is launching a pilot for the Clinical/Translational Research Training Track. This program provides training to UMSOM senior fellows and early-stage faculty who are seeking foundational training in developing and executing a mentored clinical research project, including effectively communicating your research to get published and funded. This 6-month training program will include didactic instruction, scientific writing instruction, experiential learning, and a capstone project. CARTI scholars are required to complete each element of the training schedule. Upon completion of the training track, CARTI scholars will have a research protocol for a clinical project that they are executing under the guidance of a mentor. The proposed training schedule for CARTI scholars is as follows:
To participate in the CARTI Clinical/Translational Research Training Track Pilot Program, applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:
