The Committee on Training serves as the oversight body for the Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI). The CRTI Steering Subcommittee, a subcommittee of the Committee on Training, is responsible for ensuring quality across all the CRTI programs. The Committee on Training recommends the appointment of the Chair of the CRTI Steering Subcommittee who serves a 3-year term, renewable once.
The CRTI Steering Subcommittee is comprised of six members representing each of the following specific domains – evaluation, curriculum, mentorship, diversity, and methodology – along with a former CRTI trainee. Members of the Subcommittee serve staggered 3-year terms with two members rotating off each year. Appointed members may not serve as representative of the same domain on the Subcommittee once their term ends. However, they may serve as a representative of another domain with a maximum of two terms. Appointed members may serve on the Subcommittee if they have served at least one year as faculty (except for the former CRTI trainee). Terms on the Subcommittee run on an academic calendar year (July 1-June 30).
The Co-Directors of CRTI, CRTI-Latin America, and CRTI-Asia-Pacific serve as ex officio, non-voting members of the CRTI Steering Subcommittee with terms congruent to their terms as co-directors. The Chair of the CRTI Steering Subcommittee serves as a liaison member of the Committee on Training.
Members of the CRTI Steering Subcommittee are required to participate in conference calls throughout the year, attend a meeting during the ASH annual meeting, and attend a meeting to be held either in conjunction with the CRTI Study Section in the spring or the CRTI workshop in August.
