K12 Mentored Research Career Development Program in Clinical and Translational Science
Now Accepting Applications!

The Institute for Integration of Medicine & Science (IIMS), home to the NIH Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) at UT Health San Antonio, is soliciting applications for the K12 Mentored Research Career Development Program (formerly called KL2). The K12 program targets early career faculty who have a professional doctoral degree or individuals who are completing postdoctoral training with an impending academic appointment. K12 Scholars are selected on a competitive basis and will embark on a 2-3–year program of intensive training in clinical and translational research and translational science, combining an innovative educational program with mentored clinical and translational research. Completion of the program is expected to position the K12 Scholar for a leadership role as an independent clinical and translational researcher/translational scientist in academic medicine, industry, or government.
