Clinical and Translational Research Scholar Program

The Center for Translational Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) invites competitive applications from UTSW and partner institutions for participation in the two-year-long Mentored Clinical and Translational Research Scholar Program.

The Program is designed to provide intense research training and career development opportunities in a multidisciplinary setting that culminate in the submission of an extramural career development grant application.

Candidates with research or health professional doctoral degrees and a strong commitment to clinical and/or translational research are eligible and are encouraged to apply. These include junior faculty, clinical research fellows, and residents who have protected time for research. Deliverables include a completed research project, publishable manuscript, and extramural grant application such as an NIH K award. Scholars will also acquire competence in critical thinking, team science, leadership, biomedical statistics, and informatics.
