, by Maura Kate Costello, M.A.
Bryan Valcarcel, M.D., M.P.H., postdoctoral fellow in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch, was selected for the American Society of Hematology's (ASH) Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI) program, which began August 2023. The goal of the CRTI is to produce leaders armed with ideas for clinical hematology research and the tools and resources to make their ideas reality.
ASH CRTI is a unique, year-long education and mentoring program for hematology fellows and junior faculty at academic medical centers, which offers a broad education on clinical research methods, research collaborations, statistical analysis, and managing the demands of family and career. The program consists of a week-long workshop that focuses on the foundation, methodologies, and application of patient-oriented clinical research; a presentation at the ASH annual meeting; a one-day class at ASH Headquarters in Washington, DC; and networking and mentorship through distance learning.
