Education and Career Development Accomplishments

Core Competencies for Clinical and Translational Research

NCATS, in collaboration with the CTSA Education and Career Development Key Function Committee, formed the Education Core Competency Work Group to define the training standards for core competencies in clinical and translational research. Learn more.

National CTSA Educational Resource Program

The National CTSA Educational Resource Program (NCERP) is an educational training resource developed by the University Rochester’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute [CTSA]. The NCERP website is organized as a concierge service  making  accessible a variety of educational modules from the CTSA consortium training programs and the NIH Institutes and Centers. The modules targeted by the NCERP are not necessarily those of a core curriculum in clinical and translational research, but rather specialized educational courses that may represent a particular area of strength for an institution.  The NCERP resource is available to CTSA institutions’ trainees, scholars, and investigators.


xTrain Resource Provided by eRA Commons has been Expanded

The Electronic Research Administration Agency has recently expanded the Web-based xTrain resource. xTrain provides program directors, university administrators, trainees and scholars the ability to electronically process and submit appointment forms and termination notices associated with institutional research training grants and career development awards.

xTrain now accepts trainee appointments to the CTSA training program T32/TL1 and scholar appointments to the CTSA K12/KL2 institutional career development program from all institutions registered with the eRA Commons. It can be utilized now; there are no further registrations or special steps required. Training modules are available on the eRA Commons website.
