Program Structure


The CCTS PECTS Program will provide both didactic and experiential opportunities for students pursuing a PhD in a field that can serve as a foundation for a clinical or translational research career. The chosen thesis research project should have a component, at a minimum, that clearly is clinical or translational. Participating students will complete the two credit hour GEMS module Essential Technologies and Approaches in Translational Science, and attend both the annual National CTSA pre-doctoral meeting, and educational UIC meetings of PECTS trainees. Finally, students will participate in the CCTS community, participating in relevant workshops and seminar series.
