Education & Training Program

The overall goal of the Research Education, Training, and Career Development Program is to establish and cultivate an institution-wide learning environment that is inherently linked to all aspects of the CCTS. This is achieved through an expansion of current basic, clinical, and translational science education and training programs.

Mentored Research Training Program (TL1)


The goal of the CCTS TL1 Program is to provide trainees with the skills required to develop a career in trans-disciplinary clinical and translational research relevant to human health. Trainees supported under the TL1 component may be pre-doctoral or post-doctoral candidates seeking a research or health professional doctoral degree or its equivalent. All TL1 awardees will receive: a stipend; tuition support; limited funding for research program and travel to national meetings; access to the CCTS professional services and staff including biostatistics, subject recruitment, and human subjects approval; and access to a training curriculum in clinical and translational research methodology and specialized seminars. This support is available for a period of one year with a second year of support provided contingent upon satisfactory progress.

Career Development Program (KL2)


The OSU CCTS KL2 Program supports the career development of investigators who conduct patient-oriented or translational research. Support is available for up to three years. KL2 scholars are selected based on a competitive application process in which academic qualifications, career goals, training plan, the transdisciplinary/translational science of the mentorship team and research project, are considered for funding. Applicants receive 75% release time to pursue their training plan and research. In addition, they receive additional training from the CCTS, including a monthly lunch program on career and scientific subjects and the Business of Science, a three day training program in leadership and project management in science.

Davis Bremer Pre-K Award


The OSU CCTS Davis Bremer Pre-K Program supports the career development of investigators who possess an MD and conduct patient-oriented or translational research. Davis Bremer scholars are selected based on a competitive application process in which academic qualifications, career goals, training plan, the transdisciplinary/translational science of the mentorship team and research project, are considered for funding. The goal is to allow early career researchers to acquire pilot data and necessary training to make them competitive for a K award in one to two years.

Mentor Training Seminars


The OSU CCTS offers a mentor training once or twice a year. The training uses a University of Wisconsin-Madison mentor training curriculum that was shown to improve mentor skills in a randomized controlled trial (Academic Medicine, 89 [May 2014]: 774-782). The training uses a case-based approach to explore an intellectual framework for mentoring, and allow mentors a forum to solve mentoring dilemmas with their peers. It is presented over two, 3-hour sessions. Topics include: approaches to research mentoring; maintaining effective communications; assessing understanding; establishing expectations; addressing diversity; and fostering independence, and promoting professional development.

Consults


The manager of the Research Education, Training, and Career Development programs at the Center for Clinical & Translational Science is available to talk to researchers about training opportunities that will best fit their career development goals. Options include workshops, specific classes, and degree programs. The manager can also discuss what funding opportunities will best serve to advance the scholars research and career.

Career Development Plan


Lunch and Learn

The Center for Clinical & Translational Science holds a monthly Lunch & Learn program for K-scholars at OSU. The attendees include trainees on the CCTS's institutional KL2 award and scholars on individual and other institutional K-awards. Persons who are applying for K-awards are also welcome to attend. The topics focus on issues related to career advancement relevant to early stage faculty investigators. Recent topics have included: grantsmanship, the workings of NIH study sections, work life balance, managing lab personnel, and achieving tenure. Participants also make presentations of specific aims for projects to receive feedback from the group. Participants are regularly asked to suggest content that will be meaningful to them.

Tools of the Trade

Tools of the Trade programs are half- to whole- day training presentations designed to introduce early stage investigators and supporting staff to basic skills in clinical and translational research or introduce investigators of all kinds (faculty, staff, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers) to the latest trends in biomedical science, such as personalized medicine or new tools in biomedical informatics. Recent programs have been video-taped and posted to the CCTs website to widen access to the training presented. Topics include Conducting Research with Registries and Biorepositories, Research Participation, and Advancing Your Career in Biomedical Research.

Business of Science

The Center for Clinical & Translational Science, in cooperation with Executive Education in the Fisher College of Business, presents the Business of Science, a three-day workshop designed to enhance the skills of clinical and translational researchers in the areas of project management and team leadership so that researchers will have the tools they need to succeed in their research and advance professionally. Participants learn about the role of the leader in the creation of highly functional research teams from principles of team formation to managing team dynamics to get the most from individuals and from the group. They develop skills to effectively use information, data, and decision tools to leverage the best thinking to arrive at the best path to scientific success. Attendees are introduced to design thinking, a structured way to generate questions that also provides a method for adaptation, redirection, and innovation in the unpredictable world of scientific discovery. Participants are shown how putting stakeholders at the center of idea generation and problem analysis can result in the development of innovative ideas and effective strategies in a research setting, and are given the tools to define their leadership legacy and learn how the best leaders inspire others to follow them.

Bioethics

Bioethics and the responsible conduct of research are topics found across CCTS education programing. Tools of the Trade programs often include a segment on the ethical issues related to the topic. Each Fall, the CCTS sponsors the NIH Ethical and Regulatory Aspects of Clinical Research webcast. Participants meet to view the lectures and participate in discussion following each presentation. Lunch and Learn programs for K scholars and T trainees also regularly feature presentations on RCR and medical ethics. Ryan Nash, MD, Director, The Ohio State University Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities is a frequent contributor to these programs.
