IHSFC Training Opportunities
The IHSFC serves as an invaluable resource and platform to foster career development of young investigators in clinical research. The Human Performance and Design Services and the CEET Virtual Biorepository will greatly enhance accessibility of trainees to large databases that can serve as invaluable sources of preliminary data for Career Development awards (K Grants). Additionally, the IHSFC serves as a resource to identify mentors or collaborators interested in EHS clinical research. These activities will be performed in collaboration with the Career Development Core (CDC). Formal training in translational research is available that can be used to prepare trainees for clinical research: combined PhD-Masters of Translational Research (pre-doctoral fellows); Masters of Translational Research and Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology (terminal degree holders) is also available. Special emphasis is placed on the career training of clinician scientists who often do not identify their interests as being in environmental health. Women and underrepresented minorities are also strongly encouraged to participate.
