Dear Dr. Perez:
The Global Clinical Scholars Research Training (GCSRT) program (hms.harvard.edu/gcsrt) is a groundbreaking one-year program of blended learning at Harvard Medical School intended for clinicians and clinician-scientists who desire rigorous training in the methods and conduct of clinical research.
The GCSRT program is accepting applications for the 2014/15 program, which begins June 21, 2014. The program's three main goals are to build skills in clinical research, provide knowledge in biostatistics, epidemiology, and clinical trials and develop a global network. For more information about the program, go to our website.
Apply HERE or register for a web-based information session to learn more about the program. Next GCSRT web-based information session will be held on April 9, 2014 at 9:00 am (EST).

Each student, or Mentee, will be matched with a team of three (3) Mentors. The team will consist of one primary Mentor (senior researcher in academia, public or private sector), one secondary Mentor (doctoral student or senior researcher without an active project), and one tertiary Mentor (researcher at Mentee's institution).
The primary Mentor must have an active research project that relates to a health issue affecting the Hispanic community that the Mentee can contribute to. Teams should e-meet at least once a month for one hour via video/phone conferencing to ensure that the Mentee is making progress on agreed-upon research.
To supplement the research experience, Mentees will participate in bi-monthly online lectures that focus on research methods, research careers, and disseminating research. At the end of the program, Mentees will submit a research product: abstract, research poster, and give an oral presentation. For a complete list of requirements,CLICK HERE.
