Training & Education
The ICTR offers a wide array of training, both for investigators at all stages of their career development, as well as the broader research team. We developed a comprehensive, integrated program in clinical and translational research training, education and career development across Johns Hopkins University to produce researchers and research professionals who can successfully improve the health of the public. Our training and development programs facilitate our team science approach to train the workforce needed to thrive in the new research environment. We strive to provide a set of training and career development opportunities, a toolbox of educational activities for trainees and an interdisciplinary training environment.
