Applications open for Clinical Trialist Training Program

The Clinical Trialist Training Program (CTTP) is a joint initiative between the CRSO, NC TraCS, and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. This initiative provides 10% salary support for one year of training to develop new site investigators for multicenter clinical trials.

The goal of this program is to engage new clinical trialists who will develop a clinical trial portfolio and generate continued salary support beyond the year of training. This funding opportunity is open to School of Medicine faculty who are in departments that can support a clinical trial.

Program & Training Experience

The CTTP will provide didactic training and hands-on trial experience including:

  • Participation in a “Clinical Trials 101 Bootcamp” (view curriculum)
  • Identification of multicenter trials in which to participate as the site Principal Investigator (PI)
  • Feasibility and financial assessments; contract execution and IRB applications; and recruitment strategies, tools, and budgeting for the selected trials
  • Support of TraCS staff knowledge and resources
