Mission: To develop future leaders in clinical research who are highly trained in clinical research design and methods, skilled in the tools of clinical investigation, and able to work creatively and collaboratively with their colleagues in other disciplines to generate new knowledge to improve health.
About the KL2 Program
The Clinical Research Scholars Program (KL2) is the collaborative effort of the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Nursing, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and is associated with the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation and the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology and Clinical Research. Funding for the Clinical Research Scholars Program is provided by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) through a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) administered by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).
We support the career development of individuals dedicated toward a career in clinical investigation and who aspire to develop into independent, established, and ethical leaders in clinical research who are highly trained in clinical research design and methods, skilled in the tools of clinical investigation, and able to work creatively and collaboratively with colleagues in other disciplines to generate new knowledge to improve health. These KL2 awards provide support for clinical research training and career development of persons in relevant disciplines and professions (including but not limited to internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, statistics, nursing, epidemiology and behavioral sciences psychology, and engineering) and their various specialties and sub-specialties.
We are committed to increasing the participation of women and individuals from ethnic or racial groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. Such groups include American Indian or Alaska native, Asian, Black or African-American, Hispanic or Latino, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. Applications from women and minority candidates are encouraged. In addition, accommodations will be made to assist any individuals with disabilities so those persons who are qualified applicants can complete the program.
