The Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical Translational Science (GHUCCTS) offers a variety of educational and training resources.  

GHUCCTS Degree Programs offer educational, training and career development opportunities to promote careers in clinical and translational research.

GHUCCTS Degree and Certificate Programs:

The Master's Program in Clinical & Translational Research (MS-CTR) provides coursework that prepares graduates for careers as clinical faculty in medical centers; as investigators in pharmaceutical or medical device industries; as employees of clinical research organizations or federal agencies; or to support oversight roles within academic organizations or directorship of accredited specialty /sub-specialty training programs.| Learn More

Graduate Certificate in CTR
This certificate program is for any member of the research team who wants to learn how to design and conduct high-quality research involving human subjects.| Learn More

Career Development &Training Awards:

The KL2 Junior Faculty Scholars Program is a multi-disciplinary career development program supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the NIH National Center for Advancing Clinical and Translational Science (NCATS). This K-series career development award is nearly identical to our previous KL2 awards and analogous to individual K23 or K08 awards, with a focus on developing early-career (MD or equivalent; doctorally-trained nurses, pharmacists or dentists; and clinically or translationally-oriented PhD) faculty  investigators through an inter-or multi-disciplinary mentored research experience so that they can become independent, extramurally-funded investigators.

The TL1 Translational Biomedical Science (TBS) Program is a research training program for pre- and post-doctoral students. The goal of the TBS program offered through GHUCCTS is to prepare pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows (MDs and PhDs) to serve as the critical link in advancing the translation of basic science into improved outcomes for health, aging, and disease. | Learn More

Seminars & Workshops:

GHUCCTS offers a variety of organized seminars, workshops, and lectures oriented to the needs of trainees, faculty, and staff. Throughout the year, these seminars and workshops provide additional opportunities for career development and enrichment. | Learn More

Mentor Training:

The Career Development and Mentoring Program (CDP) has two related goals: 1) mentorship development for mid-level faculty to develop and refine skills pertinent to Clinical and Translational Research (CTR) and to mentorship of junior colleagues and trainees, and 2) modification of policies related to institutional support for careers in CTR, including provision of protected time for CTR and ensuring appropriate credit for team science participation and productivity in promotion decisions.
