GCSRT Program | Curriculum
The Harvard Medical School Global Clinical Scholars Research Training (GCSRT) Program curriculum is designed to enable scholars to develop knowledge and sharpen skills in clinical research.
FOUNDATION, ELECTIVE, AND CONCENTRATION COURSES
The curriculum’s courses allow scholars to obtain a broad base of knowledge in clinical research and then overlay specialized information in their concentration of either advanced Epidemiology or Clinical Trials. Both concentrations require scholars to take the foundation courses and their choice of elective courses.
Training in planning and writing a clinical research proposal will be accomplished through the Capstone Project. Scholars will develop a research question and begin writing their proposals prior to the second workshop. Feedback on the draft proposal will be provided by faculty and will be reviewed by peers as well as faculty before scholars submit their final versions for ranking by a faculty panel. The scholars authoring the “Top 10” proposals will be invited to present their studies via webinar and all program participants will be invited to attend. The “Top 3” of these presentations will present at the final workshop in Boston.
