Overview: The BMSF DCTCDP is a 2-year program designed to support the career development of early-stage investigator (as defined by NIH) physicians underrepresented in medicine, or, physicians who have a demonstrated commitment to increasing diversity in clinical research, to become independent clinical trial investigators who are engaged in advancing health equity through their research and mentoring.
Description: The BMSF DCTCDP offers a comprehensive and integrated approach to increasing diversity in clinical trials through workforce development and clinical trial site development in underserved communities where underrepresented patients receive care. Additionally, the program will assist program investigators in building capacity and standing up new clinical trials sites in communities with diverse and heavily burdened patient populations.
Objective: To transform the clinical research landscape by providing training and resources to build a network of new clinical investigators with both community engagement, and research skills, and to expand the number of community-based sites with the capacity to conduct clinical and translational research.
