Predoctoral Clinical/Translational Research MS/MSPH Program (12-Month TL1)

Broaden Your Career Options with a CCTS-funded Clinical Research Fellowship!

Through the CCTS Pre-doctoral Training Program (TL1 trainees), eligible individuals will acquire competencies necessary to conduct clinical and translational research. The TL1 award provides a stipend and partial support for tuition and specified educational expenses for one year. During this year, the trainee will complete the CCTS’ Clinical and Translational Science Training Program.

CCTS TL1 trainees dedicate full-time effort to pursue a translational science-related doctoral degree. In addition to completing the core curriculum and other requirements, trainees will ultimately complete a dissertation that will culminate in the submission of manuscripts for publication and a grant application.

Mentored Career Development Program (KL2)

The CCTS Mentored Career Development Program (KL2 scholars) is for junior faculty in a clinical or related discipline. The overall goal of this training program is to impart knowledge, experience, and perspective to a network of junior scientists who will emerge as independent investigators.  

Scholars, selected through a competitive application process, receive KL2 Clinical and Translational Science career development support for up to five years with protected time for both formal training and hands-on research. Scholars enroll in an educational program, usually the MSPH in Clinical and Translational Science, which include the CTS core curriculum. In parallel, they enter a research apprenticeship with a primary mentor who has an excellent training record and commits to extended close interaction with the scholar. Training will culminate in lead author manuscripts and an extramurally-funded research grant submission (e.g., R01).
