Clinical Research Training Institute

The application deadline for invited applicants is March 23, 2018.

The ASH Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI) is a unique, year-long education and mentoring program for hematology fellows and junior faculty at academic medical centers. CRTI offers a broad education on clinical research methods, research collaborations, statistical analysis, and managing the demands of family and career. The goal of the program is to produce leaders armed with ideas for clinical hematology research and the tools and resources to make their ideas a reality.

CRTI consists of four mandatory components:

  1. A week-long workshop in August in La Jolla, California, which focuses on the foundation, methodologies, and application of patient-oriented clinical research
  2. A follow-up meeting at the ASH annual meeting in December
  3. A final, one-day class in May at ASH Headquarters in Washington, DC
  4. Networking and mentorship through distance learning, which takes place between the in-person meetings

There is no fee to apply, and ASH pays for participants’ travel expenses to the summer workshop and spring meeting. Travel costs and other expenses associated with attending the ASH annual meeting are the responsibility of the participant and/or the participant’s academic institution. Learn more.
