Many research and clinical institutions affiliated with academic medical centers serve populations characterized by their diversity (e.g., race/ethnicity, country of origin, acculturation, socio-economic status, education level, etc.). Clinical and translational researchers are encouraged to develop full understanding, engagement, and competency in carrying out research involving diverse populations. In 2016, a nine CTSA collaborative came together to develop a set of curricular materials intended to provide early-stage clinical and translational researchers in training with a roadmap on best practices for incorporating population characteristics to their research that also meets community needs. Once completed, these set of materials will be shared with the larger CTSA consortium. If you are interested in learning more please contact Workforce Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
