Program Description: 

The purpose of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute’s Clinical Research Scholars Program is to provide didactic training and individual mentoring in career development and clinical research to junior faculty who are pursuing careers in academic medicine as independently funded, clinical and translational investigators. The training sessions promote collaborative research education through the provision of didactic speakers, skills-based activities, and manuscript/grant review groups. There are barriers to clinical investigators engaging in research and the number of clinical investigators nationally has declined, as has the capacity of clinical investigators to compete for federal grant funding . Documented barriers to engaging in clinical research include lack of resources or limited access to resources, limited opportunities to network and collaborate with investigators from diverse backgrounds, and a lack of direction about how to proceed (e.g., guidance in grant writing; guidance in clinical research design) . NIH established the “NIH Roadmap” to address these barriers, enhance clinical research workforce training, and reengineer the clinical research enterprise . In 2015, the Medical College was awarded a Clinical & Translational Science Award (NIH UL1TR001436) to provide infrastructure supporting efforts to enhance the translation of research findings from bench to bedside and from beside into clinical practice. This grant supports the efforts of the MCW Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The expanded training of clinical investigators is a critical part of the CTSI’s mission.
