"Translational Medicine Course for M.D. and Ph.D. Postdoctoral Scholars"

Objective:


This course will introduce every aspect of preparing and conducting a clinical and translational science research program, including program design, data analysis, and regulatory requirements. It will be instructed by both physician-scientists and Ph.D. scientists. Class topics will include:

  • Design, implementation, and value of all phases of clinical and tranlational research
  • Interdisciplinary team science—how to get and to keep M.D.s and Ph.D.s working together
  • Importance of epidemiology, statistics and informatics to clinical and translational research
  • Regulatory and ethical concerns for human studies


Throughout the course, participants will be encouraged to design a pilot clinical and translational project using a team-based approach. All projects will be critiqued by participating faculty. This course is open to M.D. and Ph.D. postdoctoral scholars in all disciplines.

Class meeting Schedule
The class will take place next Spring 2015.
