CTSA Program grantees have developed a set of national training resources for clinical and translational sciences, including educational core competencies, best practices for training mentors and curriculum materials for training courses. These educational resources are freely available, and many institutions have integrated them into their training programs.

Members of the regional Midwest Consortium for Education and Research Collaboration, a regional CTSA Program network, are partnering to strengthen clinical research education programs, mentoring and career development opportunities for scholars in the region.
Eli Lilly Externship Opportunity
NCATS has partnered with Eli Lilly and Company to offer externships for CTSA Program scholars, trainees and investigators. Participants receive training to enhance their skill sets and competencies in clinical trial design, clinical pharmacology, toxicology, regulatory affairs and other critical drug development processes.
