Course Description

This course is offered by the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute to UF Health Science Center junior faculty, fellows, Ph.D. students and others interested in patient-oriented research careers.

It is a highly interactive series of 11 sessions led by leading faculty in the UF Health Science Center. It includes basic elements of study design, database design and management, health center resources, regulatory issues, and biostatistical considerations.

The course also includes practical, interactive small-group sessions to develop an interdisciplinary protocol. Individuals wishing to participate in the small group research experience must register for graduate credit.

We ask that clinical fellows who attend this course be relieved of all clinical duties during each session.
