Summer Program

CCTS 3-Day Summer Program in Clinical and Translational Research Methods

Each summer, the CCTS Education and Professional Development Core offers a three-day program in Clinical and Translational Research Methods for Clinicians and Research Coordinators, who incorporate research into their clinical practice or those who are interested in exploring clinical and translational research possibilities.

The course discusses research methods, examines the best approaches to clinical research, outlines the steps required for conducting clinical research, explores online bibliographic citation management software and numerous proprietary databases available through the UIC Health Science Library, and reviews the ethical considerations of clinical research including requisite IRB approval and HIPAA requirements.

Attendees say...

“I will put this new information to use in assisting my department with the research study. It will bring my team more organization and keep errors to a minimum.”

“I have learned how to find other researchers to collaborate on a project.”

“The [program] has broadened my resource base and knowledge base- one can only utilize what they have knowledge about. It was nice to have a group of people experiencing the same issues as myself.”

“I will...hopefully avoid pitfalls that may have otherwise set my project back if I didn't go through the correct channels initially.”
