Portugal Clinical Scholars Research Training Certificate Program (PTCSRT) is a two-year certificate program designed to provide in depth training in the theory and skills that are necessary to forge a successful career in clinical research. The PTCSRT program is fully supported by the Portuguese Government through FCT and is tuition free for accepted students. PTCSRT is intended for Portuguese medical residents and fellows and is conducted exclusively in English.
The program begins with our first workshop in Lisbon on 9th February 2018 and will include instruction in the epidemiological and biostatistical methods used in observational and experimental clinical research, as well as training in the oral and written forms of scientific communication.

All activities are supported by interactive webinars held by Harvard faculty.
