Education Clearinghouse

Whether you’re new to clinical and translational science and research, or you’ve been involved for some time, there’s always something new to learn. In an effort to encourage educational resource-sharing and collaboration, CLIC has compiled a list of online and in-person courses, workshops and other educational tools related to the field of translational science. View the complete list below or narrow your search by competency, delivery method, institution or another parameter. Contact if you have any questions.

Additional datasets, guides, manuals and the like are housed in the CLIC Resource Center


Precision Medicine for Your Practice

CME and CNE modules on the clinical applications of genetic testing

How can genetics be used in clinic with my patients? Can genetic information really improve outcomes? Genetic testing is constantly changing. How can I keep up?

Precision Medicine for Your Practice is an educational program being developed by Scripps Research Translational Institute (Scripps), the American Medical Association (AMA), and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) to help clinicians answer these questions. In each module, you will have the opportunity to:

Fundamentals of Clinical and Translational Research (FaCToR) - Online

FaCToR offers an overview of the concepts of clinical/translational research through the dynamic and interactive medium of online learning. As a selected participant of this online course, you will learn about the spectrum of clinical and translational research from first-in-human studies to healthcare interventions implemented on a population level.

UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research - Workshops & Non-credit Courses

University of Wisconsin-Madison ICTR, along with its Marshfield Clinic Research Institute partner, offers a variety of courses, workshops and presentations on specific topics related to clinical and translational research, including study design, grant and manuscript writing, overviews of conducting clinical and translational research, stakeholder engagement,  biomedical informatics, and qualitative research methods.

Introduction to Translational Science MOOC

Translational science seeks to speed up the process of moving research discoveries from the laboratory into healthcare practices. Numerous scientific and organizational roadblocks can act as obstacles along the path of translation and ultimately hinder the speed of progress in medical research. The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) was established by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to transform and accelerate the translational research process, with the intended result of getting treatments to more patients faster.

Dissemination and Implementation Toolkits

Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) science is the study of translation of research findings into practice. Eight pdf files: DIRC Intro to D&I Toolkit, Aims Toolkit, Barriers & Facilitators Toolkit, Implementation Outcomes Toolkit, Designs Toolkit, Implementation Strategies Toolkit, Guidelines Toolkit, Checklist for Writing IR Proposals

DIAMOND Digital Learning Portal & e-Portfolio

DIAMOND is a collaborative discovery learning space for clinical research professionals. Through the DIAMOND portal, you can access or share competency based training offerings and assessments for workforce development. DIAMOND also provides a unique e-Portfolio system powered by so you can demonstrate and document your knowledge, skills, and abilities as well indentify areas for professional development.
