Program Overview

Designed for clinicians and clinician-scientists in both the United States and abroad, our Global Clinical Scholars Research Training (GCSRT) program provides advanced training in health care research and methods. Using a blended learning model that incorporates online tools, in-person seminars and dynamic workshops, the curriculum is focused on enhancing your ability at every stage of the research process–from writing grant proposals and launching new projects to analyzing data and presenting your results. 

A one-year program, GCSRT combines online learning with three intensive workshops that are designed to offer a mix of traditional and innovative approaches.
