UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Science is offering its annual Summer Program in Clinical and Translational Research Methods this July for residents, fellows, and junior faculty.  This educational program aims to help clinicians incorporate research into their clinical careers and is designed with the unique needs and time constraints of residents and fellows in mind.  At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to discuss research methods, identify the steps required for conducting clinical research, explore online bibliographic citation management software and explain the ethical considerations of clinical research, including requisite IRB approval.  Those interested in participating may register by contacting Biruté Petrauskas at (312) 413-5429 through June 15, 2012.
