10 Jun ITHS Announces TL1 Yearlong Clinical Research Trainees
The Institute of Translational Health Sciences announced today the acceptance of 12 University of Washington students into its yearlong TL1 Multidisciplinary Pre-doctoral Clinical Research Training Program. The TL1 program provides core curriculum and interdisciplinary research experience to pre-doctoral students across all health professions. The goal of the 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.
“The TL1 Program supports trainees in acquiring translational research skills and developing a deeper understanding of the research perspectives and problems that other health science-related disciplines are addressing,” said Dr. Joie Whitney, Professor and Associate Dean for Research in the UW School of Nursing and Co-Director of the ITHS TL1 program. “This prepares the trainees for future roles using team science to solve important problems affecting human health.”
The 12 students who were accepted represent five of the six UW health sciences schools as well as the College of Arts & Sciences. These students, and their affiliation, are as follows.
|Julie Feuerstein||Arts & Sciences||Speech & Hearing Sciences|
|Derek Maffett||Arts & Sciences||Speech & Hearing Sciences|
|Ellita Williams||Nursing||Biobehavioral Nursing|

|Stephanie Kovacs||Public Health||Epidemiology|
|Tove Ryman||Public Health||Epidemiology|

“We received more than 40 applications for the 12 available positions, which is an indicator of the tremendous level of interest from UW students for training of this nature,” shared Dr. Whitney.
