In addition to the above opportunities, the CTSC supports the following programs and services designed to advance clinical and translational science.

Clinical Research Scholars Program (CRSP)

The Clinical Research Scholars Program (CRSP) at Case Western Reserve University offers a Master's in Clinical Research through two pathways. Both pathways are flexible two-to four-year Master's programs which provide rigorous didactic education in clinical research methods coupled with either an in-depth mentored investigative thesis or hands-on experience in conducting clinical research through a Capstone Project.

PhD in Clinical Translational Science (CTS)

The goal of the CTS program is to train and graduate clinical-translational scientists to meet the need for a transformed clinical and translational enterprise. Students in the program will be rigorously educated in the theory and practice of clinical translational science in order to make significant clinical discoveries and to move these discoveries across the translational continuum.

Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research

The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research program combines knowledge from biostatistics, epidemiology, and study design with training in ethical, legal, and regulatory issues in patient-oriented research. Upon completion of the Certificate Program, individuals will achieve basic competency in the following domains:

  • Formulation of Clinical Research Questions
  • Literature Critique
  • Study Design
  • Analytic Methods
  • Research Ethics

Introduction to Clinical Research 

July 6 – 23, 2021 (Monday – Friday, 8-11am)

The CRSP 401 "Introduction to Clinical Research" summer course is designed to familiarize one with the language and concepts of clinical investigation and statistical computing, as well as provide opportunities for problem-solving, and practical application of the information derived from the lectures. The material is organized along the internal logic of the research process, beginning with mechanisms of choosing a research question and moving into the information needed to design the protocol, implement it, analyze the findings, and draw and disseminate the conclusion(s).

Clinical Research Team Training

These educational opportunities are offered at the five partner institutions within the Cleveland CTSC. They are designed to provide training for all research team members as well as to provide awareness of the many resources that are available to the team across the institutions. Courses may offer CREC credits. Please take advantage of these shared resources!

Note: Course offerings may be institution specific and have limited sitting. Please contact course coordinators at the individual institutions with questions.
