Skaggs-Oxford Program

Young physicians envisioning a career as both clinicians and scientists are ideal candidates for participation in the KL2 Clinical Scholars Program of the Scripps Research Translational Institute. The KL2 grant allows for a recently trained clinical physician to pursue a master’s degree in the discipline of Clinical and Translational Investigation (MCTI). The MCTI program introduces and enables the evolving physician scientist in the domains of biostatistics, genomics, molecular medicine, and clinical trial design and execution via seminar participation with colleagues from the graduate program at Scripps. The KL2 scholar then develops a collaborative research endeavor in conjunction with basic or translational or community engagement scientists at Scripps Research, the Whittier Institute, the Scripps Clinic or one of our other numerous scientific and clinical partner organizations.
