Introduction to Clinical Research Training (ICRT) Program

May 18, 2016


I wanted to let you know about a groundbreaking program from Harvard Medical School that I direct called the Introduction to Clinical Research Training (ICRT) Program. The ICRT program utilizes an innovative, blended-learning approach. Two face-to-face workshops, each three days in length, flank the six-month core curriculum, combining traditional live teaching methods with online instruction, team projects and interactive webinars. This unique mix of individual and cooperative learning provides each student with strong critical thinking skills, while also exposing them to the challenges and opportunities of collaborative research efforts.
