The Clinical and Basic/Translational Research Course

A new course has been developed to enhance exposure to research for trainees across all departments. This program is a partnership between the Division of Urology, other Divisions within Surgery, the School of Engineering, the Office of Curricular Affairs MS3 Program, the School of Engineering Graduate Program, MEDx, CTSI, and others. The Clinical and Basic/Translational Research Course for Trainees 2017 - 2018 is now open to all Research Trainees (graduate students, research medical students, research residents, post-doctoral research fellows, clinical research fellows and junior faculty).

Interested trainees can register for one or more modules, so even though the first lecture has occurred you may sign up for later modules. Lectures are mostly on Thursday a.m. at 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. with only a handful on Tuesdays from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. Please contact Dr. Matthew Fraser for the registration site URL and password, or if you have any questions.
