Congratulations to the inaugural cohort of the Blue Star Investigator Certificate Program. On November 17, 11 clinicians from across Tufts Medical Center completed this eight-week program designed to develop junior investigators’ skills in the nuts and bolts of designing and running a clinical trial. Departments represented by the learners included: anesthesiology, endocrinology, hematology/oncology, Mother Infant Research Institute, pathology, pediatrics, rheumatology, and surgery.
The program was designed and developed by Tufts CTSI’s Regulatory, Research Process Improvement, and Professional Education Teams, and featured 19 staff from across Tufts CTSI, Tufts Medical Center, and Tufts University as content experts and guest speakers.
Tufts CTSI will seek applicants for the Blue Star Program’s second cohort in 2022.
