Clinical Research Scholars Program (KL2)


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).


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.

We do this by:

  • providing individuals with rigorous training leading to an advanced degree
  • helping them to develop and execute a clinical research project
  • matching scholars with mentors

Please review our eligibility requirements for prospective applicants (subject to change).  For more information, see our 2019 KL2 Faculty RFA.  Additionally, we invite anyone interested in learning more to view our recorded information session:
