Translational Workforce Development Projects

Tufts CTSI is an educational leader within the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Consortium. As part of the leadership team from the Enhancing Clinical Research Professionals’ Training and Qualifications (ECRPTQ) Project, we helped define Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training recommendations and CTSA-wide competency-based standards, particularly for clinical research coordinators. We then helped co-launch the DIAMOND portal, a national digital collection of competency-based training and assessment offerings for clinical research professionals. Learn more about DIAMOND.
