The program's structure supports excellent training in translational team science. Core training activities for all M.D. and Ph.D. trainees include developing an individual development plan, taking courses on clinical investigation, grants and contracts and human subjects research; participating in team science and career development seminars; and attending a monthly research-in-progress seminar series, a weekly journal club and a yearly scientific retreat. All trainees must present at these meetings.
The program offers three training tracks:
- Laboratory-based research
- Patient-based research
- Global and public health research
