Training and Education
Training is a central function of the Boston University Clinical and Translational Science Institute (BU CTSI). Trainees from the institute are major sources of institutional transformation, and many go on to serve as Boston University junior faculty members.
Trainees conduct translational and multidisciplinary research that provides a model for more traditional faculty and an impetus for interdisciplinary research at Boston University Medical Center. The Division of Research Education is directed by David T. Felson, MD, MPH, BU Profile in the new KL2 program.
The training and education function also is home for the K-30 program, the Clinical Research Training Program (CREST) at Boston University School of Medicine. This program is also directed by Drs. Felson and Hylek. Since 1999, with support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the CREST program has trained and mentored fellows and junior faculty who are interested clinical and health services research. The program includes:
- A biweekly seminar
- Mentoring program
- Course work that leads to an advanced degree at Boston University School of Public Health
