Education and Training

The GCRC is a key institutional resource for clinical research training and career development of physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, biostatisticians, and others through integration with the K30 Clinical Research Curriculum Development program and the Roadmap Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development K12 program

The GCRC Research Subject Advocate (RSA) participates in campus-wide training in clinical research, study coordination and good clinical practice. The GCRC's Nurse Director mentors nursing students from the UMB School of Nursing in clinical research and study coordination.

Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Program (Roadmap K12 Program)

In September 2005, the University of Maryland was awarded a Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Program (Roadmap K12 Program), one of a handful of such programs in the nation. The overall aim of the program is to support the early career development of clinical researchers - known as NIH Clinical Research Scholars - in all types of clinical research, including patient-oriented research, translational research, small- and large-scale clinical investigation and trials, and epidemiologic and natural history. This program is directed by Alan Shuldiner, MD, a GCRC investigator.

Clinical Research Curriculum Development Program (K30 Program)

In September 2000, the University of Maryland was awarded a Clinical Research Curriculum Develpment Program (K30 Program). The overall objective of this program is to equip individuals prepared with doctoral level professional degrees in clinical disciplines with the critical skills needed to develop and lead scientifically valid and ethically appropriate clinical research. This program is directed by Mary-Claire Roghmann, MD, MS, who is also a GCRC Investigator.
