CTSA Training and Career Development

Providing the resources to train, cultivate and sustain future leaders of the biomedical research workforce is a key CTSA program goal.

Tharani Vadivelu, entrant in the student/resident category of the poster competition, shares her research with Robert A. Clark, IIMS principal investigator.

The program enables a coordinated, national effort to help ensure that our nation will have a pipeline of trained investigators who can move basic research findings into application for improving health as novel therapies, diagnostics and preventives.

Scientists and clinicians gain practical research experience by working with interdisciplinary teams guided by experienced mentors. This team science approach helps prepare clinician-scientists to better address today’s complex research challenges. Find out how to access CTSA clinical research scholar and training opportunities.

In addition, CTSA program support enables open access to a wide variety of training resources and educational materials created by CTSA grantees and NIH.
