VPMM leadership has designed a didactic course titled “Introduction to Clinical and Translational Research” that is open to VPMM trainees as well as students from any biomedical Ph.D. program at Vanderbilt. VPMM students have also been invited to fully participate in an innovative and interactive course, “VPMM Clinical Rounds”, that relates clinical problems with basic science research in various areas. Additionally, all trainees attend a bi-weekly seminar series.
In addition to the above, VPMM students have access to several medical school and graduate school courses, didactic components of resident and fellow training programs as well as an educational seminar series offered through the Clinical Research Center. Students may also identify other course offerings, seminars, grand rounds or other educational events as well as online resources for participation in which they can request program credit.
