Clinical and Translational Science, Grad Certificate
School of Medicine
The Certificate Program in Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) is
designed to meet the needs of a variety of learners who are seeking exposure
to clinical and translational research competencies. The CTS Certificate
Program, along with the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences, Clinical
Research concentration (MS-BIOM-CR
), is an
educational component of the UNM HSC Clinical and Translational Science
Center (CTSC). The CTSC is a Health Sciences Center initiative to integrate
and expand the reach of biomedical research from the laboratory to clinical
and medical practice: promoting a bench to bedside to community effort.
Increasingly, pressing global health problems have led educators to
accelerate the training of clinical, basic science, and translational
researchers. Therefore, this program will provide students the basic tools
necessary to translate scientific discovery into actionable solutions.
The CTS Certificate Program is open to individuals that have already
completed doctoral-level training in the areas of basic science, public
health, medical, clinical, engineering or social science (MD, PhD, PharmD,
ScD, etc). Individuals with a strong interest in expanding their skills in
Clinical and Translational research who are receiving additional training at
UNM (i.e. post-doctoral and clinical fellows), or those that are currently
employed at UNM as junior faculty are strongly encouraged to apply.
Additionally, students currently seeking a graduate degree in these
areas may be considered for admission, if space is available.
