Objective: To assist those working with training programs to identify relevant core competencies and intensity of training for specific research roles.
Question: How are training programs using existing CTSA core competencies to create a “personalized pathway” for trainees across the translational spectrum?
- Currently 97 competencies across 14 Core Thematic Areas listed
- Additional 9 sets of role-based competencies
- Trainees with different levels of prior preparation and unique career goals
Goal: To assist those working with training programs to identify relevant core competencies and level of mastery recommended for specific research roles (“phenotypes”).
- Increase efficiency of training (“overtraining” or “undertraining”)
- Manage learner/mentor expectations
- Assist with preparation of Individual Development Plans
- A cross-sectional REDCap survey requested input from CTSA educators on what level of training mastery is recommended in each of the 97 competencies based on an individual’s desired career phenotype
- Survey distributed to members of Workforce DTF and Methods/Processes DTF - Snowball sampling to reach individuals who advise trainees
- Focused on KL2 Scholars
- Manuscript submission
- Upload data for all phenotypes to CLIC workspace
- Consider different workforce/team roles
- Explore whether information is useful for: - development of the IDP; - identifying gaps in hub programs
