“Advancing future leadership, excellence in clinical research through training and participation, creativity, scholarship and collaboration”
Welcome to the Predoctoral Clinical Research Training Program (PCTRP). This program based out of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is a collaborative effort of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public, and the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Funding for the PCRTP is provided by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) through a National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) funded Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA).
The mission of the Johns Hopkins Predoctoral Clinical Research Training Program is:
- To provide students with a more intensive long-term learning experience that prepares them to be exemplary clinical researchers and teachers of clinical research (combined master and doctoral degrees with MD or nursing degree).
- To provide short-term (summer or elective) clinical research experiences for predoctoral trainees, annually, that will stimulate and maintain their interest in a clinical research career during their medical school training and post-graduate training.
- To enhance curriculum at Johns Hopkins to provide all predoctoral trainees with core knowledge, attitudes and skills for lifelong interest in participation in clinical research studies.
