OVERVIEW: The Regulatory Knowledge and Support (RKS) group, the Clinical Research Support (CRS) group, the Workforce Development (WD) group, and colleagues from the Georgia CTSA's Translational Workforce Development (TWD) are in the process of collaborating on a catalog of trainings and educational offerings aimed at clinical research professionals at every stage of their professional development. This collaboration began in spring 2020 and has involved instructional designers, clinical research staff and education experts to ensure the offerings are relevant, tailored to and appropriate for the intended audience. The idea for the Self-career Training, Education, Life-long Learning Advancement Resource (STELLAR) program was born out of a need for education and support for the entire clinical and translational research workforce, beyond formally trained faculty, trainees and fellows.
GOALS: To understand education and training needs of clinical and translational research professionals and to develop robust curriculum offerings to address those needs, leveraging materials from across the CTSA consortium.
CURRENT STATUS: The course catalog is live. Click here to access. New courses are added monthly, and users have the opportunity to earn badges, contact hours for professional organizations, and continuing education credits.
