The CCTS PECTS Program will provide both didactic and experiential opportunities in the methods of clinical and disease-oriented research, for students pursuing a PhD in a field that does not routinely provide such training, but that can serve as a foundation for clinical or translational research, if properly supplemented. Alternatively, a translational track or concentration in that field may provide this supplementation. Each trainee must have a named second mentor outside his/her primary field who has clinical or translational research expertise. Correspondingly, the chosen thesis research project should have a component that clearly is clinical or translational. Participating students will complete two 3-credit hour courses in practical and quantitative aspects of clinical research methods, or in human physiology, plus an Ethics in Clinical Research course (1 credit hour). Examples include BSTT 400 and HPA522; relevant on-line courses include HPA 472, HPA 479 and BHIS 509. Finally, students will participate in the CCTS community, participating in relevant workshops and seminar series.
