Call for Applicants
The Mentored Clinical Research Training Program (MCRTP) is pleased to announce the fourth annual call for candidate applications. The MCRTP is part of an on-going strategic initiative to further prepare UC Davis for interdisciplinary, team-based clinical and translational research by training researchers through a multidisciplinary, didactic curriculum, and mentored research experience. The MCRTP is also a core component of the Clinical Translational Science Center (CTSC) established in October 2006.
The MCRTP trains individuals to conduct patient-oriented, clinical and translational research with full understanding of the best scientific, ethical, regulatory, and management practices. The multidisciplinary, mentored research environment offers practical laboratory experience coupled with communication and collaboration skills and techniques for optimizing team-based, patient-oriented research. The formal two year MCRTP curriculum solidifies the experience through critical classroom analysis and provides a didactic educational foundation from which students can address the present and future challenges of patient-oriented clinical and translational research. The curriculum is a required part of most career development awards including NIH K23 and K08 awards. Graduates from the MCRTP will be eligible for the UCD K12 Program.
