SCSP was established to address the critical need for formal training
opportunities in clinical research, which is vital to the advancement
of scientific knowledge and the development of improved treatments
for human disease. The goal of the SCSP is to provide superior,
coordinated didactic and practical training for individuals interested
in careers in translational investigation (human physiology, pathophysiology,
and genetics), human pharmacology, and clinical trials. The program
prepares trainees to be effective leaders of complex research
groups, academic departments, academic medical centers, or industrial
or managed care groups.
