The Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) has created an academic education and training program with the overarching objective of identifying, inspiring and nurturing the next generation of translational scientists. Participating in the program, which is supported by the NIH Clinical and Translational Award (CTSA), are Scripps Health physician-scientists and The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and Kellogg School of Science and Technology graduate students in the basic sciences.
STSI’s education and training program integrates and expands the resources, activities and personnel of Scripps Health and TSRI, both pre-eminent institutions in their respective fields of research, education and clinical care.
Physicians-in-training who complete the program receive the Master’s of Science in Clinical and Translational Investigation (Master’s) from TSRI’s Kellogg School of Science and Technology. When they are awarded the Ph.D. from the Kellogg School of Science and Technology, TSRI graduate students are recognized for completing STSI’s Translational Research for Advanced Doctoral Students curriculum. The physicians in-training and the advanced doctoral students participate in the same classes and seminars in advanced molecular medicine, biostatistics, clinical trial design and other topics relevant to translational research.
However, the program includes many activities that enable the doctoral students to learn about particular diseases from the viewpoints of the patients and physicians. Likewise, the physicians-in-training obtain hands-on experience in laboratory research in the basic sciences.
In addition to the Master’s of Science in Clinical and Translational Medicine and the Translational Research for Advanced Doctoral Students, STSI sponsors the Wireless Health Scholar, to train a cadre of the young physicians in the Master’s program to become the leading investigators testing, exploring and validating new wireless medical technologies.
