Undergraduate Training Program Objectives
- To stimulate the awareness and interests of college/university undergraduates in health sciences and translational research;
- To mentor the career development of undergraduates in clinical and translational research;
- To facilitate the recruitment of undergraduates into Penn and other prominent postgraduate medical and graduate clinical and translational research training programs.
The CTSA Education leadership has developed interactions with local colleges and universities in addition to Penn. These include Bryn Mawr College, Franklin & Marshall College, Haverford College, Lincoln University, and Swarthmore College. The program provides a description of the program's various educational initiatives, including information of interest to potential CTR scholars. The program supports summer internships for undergraduates with ITMAT investigators funded by the U54 component of the CTSA.
You must be an ITMAT member to receive CTSA supported services.
All publications, press releases or other documents citing results from NIH-grant supported research much acknowledge the NIH grant support.
