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 2014, 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.
