Training & Career Development
Designed to ensure that scholars can function independently as a scientific professional, training and career development programs assist junior scholars who have completed their doctoral degrees to prepare for full-time research or academic careers and to broaden their research under senior scholars in their fields.
About Training & Education
Students are trained to independently formulate meaningful hypotheses, design and conduct interpretable experiments, adhere to good laboratory practices, analyze results critically, understand the broad significance of their research findings and uphold the highest ethical standards in research. The development of additional skills—including oral and written communication, grant writing, and laboratory management—are considered integral to this training.
Individual Development Plan
SC CTSI Training Opportunities
Training is available for new clinical/translational researchers, clinicians, and researchers seeking to develop skills in reading and interpreting clinical/translational research reports; active researchers seeking a stronger methodological foundation; or those who are interested in obtaining an introduction to clinical and translational research.
NIH K-Award Program
Recognizing the importance of clinician-researchers to the future of the nation’s health, the National Institutes of Health has developed a series of K-awards to support their career development. Some of these awards also support scientists, engineers, computational biologists, and other purely research disciplines.
