Clinical Investigator Training Enhancement Program

Indiana University has been funded by the National Institute of Health through a K-30 grant to develop and implement the Clinical Investigator Training Enhancement (CITE) program. The purpose of this program is to prepare health care professionals for a career in clinical research. Following completion of the program, graduates can embark on a career in clinical research with the skills necessary to successfully compete for grant funding, conduct and analyze research findings, and publish their work in scientific journals. By participating in the program, CITE trainees will accomplish two primary objectives: 1. Complete a two-year formal clinical research curriculum, at the end of which they will receive a Master of Science in Clinical Research degree; 2. Conduct clinical research under the mentorship of a faculty scientist whose discipline or area of clinical investigation corresponds to the research interests and career aims of the CITE enrollee. An Advisory Committee consisting of a primary mentor and other relevant faculty scientists will be established for each enrollee to monitor progress.
