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.
Research Training Collaboration
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.
University of Iowa investigators developed a Virtual University portal that houses courses and educational content on clinical and translational science, competencies and best practices shared by CTSA Program grantees and open to the research training community at large.
