The mission of the Johns Hopkins University Clinical Research Scholars Program is to develop future leaders in clinical research who are highly trained in clinical research design and methods, skilled in the tools of clinical investigation, and able to work creatively and collaboratively with their colleagues in other disciplines to generate new knowledge to improve health. We do this by providing individuals with rigorous training leading to an advanced degree, helping them to develop and execute a clinical research project, mentorship in a multidisciplinary and collaborative research environment and involvement in activities to promote career develpment.
