Specifically for UNMC faculty, the MSIA Clinical & Translational Research Mentored Scholars Program aims to develop scientists and health professionals at the junior faculty stage into productive clinical and translational researchers. The overall aim of the PhD program is to provide multidisciplinary didactic education and practical research grant training for those who intend to develop a career in clinical and translational research, so they may acquire the skills necessary to design, implement, and report ethically sound, extramurally funded clinical and translational research.
