The Penn KL2 Program
The Penn KL2 Program is designed to launch early career faculty into successful clinical and translational research careers.
Join the Penn KL2 program to advance your career development in a peer community through mentorship, personalized education, and access to resources designed for clinical and translational scientists (CTS). Leveraging ITMAT Ed's experience in CTS training, the Penn KL2 Program is designed to nurture you towards research independence by helping you:
- become adept at the conduct of clinical and translational science, and
- navigate the early faculty appointment period
Upon completion of the program, you will have mastered the CTS core competencies and achieved objective measures of success which include publications in peer reviewed journals, obtained an individual mentored career development award or independent grant funding, and continued substantial engagement in CTS.
