One of the major aims of the UB Clinical and Translational Science Institute is to train our workforce in clinical and translational science with state-of-the-art educational tools.
The goal of our educational programs is to increase the clinical and translational knowledge base of trainees across the entire spectrum from undergraduates to faculty.
Core Competency Workshops provide researchers and trainees with an efficient approach to developing and enhancing research skills. The UB CTSI offers workshops in 14 subject areas deemed essential to researchers in clinical and translational science by NCATS.
Each workshop series summarizes the contents of approximately half of a semester worth of information in order to provide the audience with the most critical elements to their research.
The workshops are tailored to meet the needs of a variety of researchers from diverse disciplines including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing and public health.
1. Research Questions
2. Literature Critique

Workshops are self-contained modules and are free of charge to everyone in the Buffalo Translational Consortium. You have the option to attend the entire series or individual sessions. Participants who attend all of the workshops in a series are eligible to receive a CTSI Certificate of Completion.
The University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. Physicians who attend any or all of the Core Competency workshops in a series may be eligible for CME credit. Check the announcement for each workshop or contact the CTSI educational workforce specialist to see if you are eligible.
