Applications for TL1 Pre-doctoral Summer Program Due March 6
The Institute of Translational Health Sciences announced today that its TL1 Multidisciplinary Pre-doctoral Clinical Research Training Program is now accepting applications from students in all six University of Washington Health Science schools for its summer-long cohort. The first part of the application is due March 6, 2015.
The ITHS TL1 Program offers core curriculum and interdisciplinary clinical and translational research experience to pre-doctoral students in all health professions at the UW. Other benefits include a pre-doctoral stipend and payment of tuition for the two-credit UCONJ 517 course. Summer trainees also receive reimbursement of up to $400 in project expenses.
The goal of the TL1 Program is to increase the number of well-trained clinician-scientists capable of assuming lead roles in the design and oversight of future interdisciplinary clinical and translational investigations. Both the year-long and summer-long versions of the TL1 program are focused on enabling pre-doctoral students to work with interdisciplinary teams who are conducting clinical and translational research in the laboratory, healthcare settings, or in the community.
