The program leading to the Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science is designed for students who are already enrolled in doctoral programs in the schools of the health sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.
The certificate program enables students to take courses and obtain training in clinical and translational science methodology and to become involved in clinical and translational research. The program also offers opportunities for collaborative research and mentorship with translational researchers.
The objective of the program is to supplement and enhance doctoral programs that are offered in various areas of basic science, clinical research, and other health sciences. The program provides an opportunity for students in these programs to learn the skills needed to conduct high-quality clinical and translational research.
