Clinical Trialist Training Program

The Clinical Trialist Training Program (CTTP) is a joint initiative between SCTR, the MUSC College of Medicine, and the Hollings Cancer Center that provides 10% salary support (plus fringe) for one year of training to develop new site investigators for multicenter clinical trials. 

The goal of this program is to engage new clinical trialists who will develop a clinical trial portfolio and generate continued salary support beyond the year of training. This funding opportunity is open to College of Medicine & Hollings Cancer Center-affiliated faculty who are in departments that can support a clinical trial.

Program Training & Experience

The CTTP will provide didactic training and hands-on trial experience including:

  • Participation in a “Clinical Trials 101 Bootcamp”

  • Identification of multicenter trials in which to participate as the site PI

  • Feasibility and financial assessments; contract execution and IRB applications; and recruitment strategies, tools, and budgeting for the selected trials

  • Support of SCTR staff knowledge and resources

  • Clinical Trials Bootcamp Schedule
