Education and Training

A key component of the CTSA mission is the education and training of translational researchers.  Ensuring that investigators have the comprehensive skills they need to effectively and efficiently accelerate discoveries toward better health is essential. 

The CTSA program supports two types of formal clinical research training awards at CTSA institutions.  All CTSA institutions have a KL2 program, which offers formal research training experience to scholars who already have an M.D., Ph.D., or equivalent doctoral degree. Many CTSA institutions also include programs that provide predoctoral trainees with an introduction to clinical and translational research through the TL1 program.

In addition to the formal training programs there are a wealth of training resources available to all investigators interested in translational research, some of which are listed below.
