Training Opportunities and Awards

The Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program (ECRIP) is a New York State Department of Health program intended to encourage clinical research and clinical research training at New York State Hospitals that support graduate medical education. Sponsor-Mentors are invited to apply for funding that will support the salary of an individual to be hired, who will pursue a course of work proposed in the application.  The individual to be hired will also be expected to have formalized instruction in clinical research, or to participate in such instruction during his/her funding period.  

School of Medicine Fellowship in Primary Care Research is pleased to offer an interdisciplinary, two-year, HRSA-funded National Research Service Award (T32) fellowship program designed to prepare physicians for careers in primary care research.  This goal is accomplished through a combination of coursework leading to a Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation and the design, performance and completion of one or more mentored original research projects.  Trainee research will focus primarily on disease prevention, health promotion, behavioral health, patient-centered care and improved access to care, particularly targeting urban poor populations.  Graduates of the program will contribute to the public’s health through research, scholarship, and program leadership. The interdisciplinary program is intended for persons who have completed residency training in Internal Medicine or Pediatrics.

KL2 Program in Translational Research
 A University-wide post-doctoral training and career development opportunity for physicians, nurses, dentists, and other appropriate health professionals. This program is most appropriate for individuals in post-doctoral training who are on the path towards (but have not yet achieved) research independence and who will continue to develop as investigators under the guidance of an established mentor. The program is a component of the Translational Research Education and Careers (TREC) unit of New York University’s NIH-funded Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI). Applicants to the program must be participating in full-time research and career development at NYU.

TL1 PhD Program in Clinical and Translational Research
 This is a University-wide doctoral training opportunity for PhD students. The program focuses on the support and development of doctoral candidates seeking careers in translational research, and is a component of the Translational Research Education and Careers (TREC) unit of New York University’s NIH-funded Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The program provides opportunities for training in clinical and translational research for PhD students in NYU’s CTSI Partner Schools.

Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP)
 Physician Scientist Training Program was established to support and encourage the participation of physician-trainees in intensive experiences in translational research. The target trainees for this program are physicians in, or starting, either residency or fellowship. For the purposes of this program, trainees must be enrolled in training at the NYU School of Medicine.

Mentor Development Program 
(MDP) The CTSI aims to ensure success of translational research at NYU by developing a cadre of research and career mentors through the Mentor Development Program.  This integrated state-of-the-art program focuses on three groups: Junior Faculty mentors, Mentees, and Senior Mentors.

New Online Training Courses Currently the CTSI Translational Research Education and Careers (TREC) Core offers two on-line courses:  

Introduction to Clinical Research and Introduction to Biostatistics 

We are in the process of developing additional modules for the future and we will alert the NYU/CTSI/HHC Community when they are available.
