Wake Forest CTSI Welcomes 2020 Inaugural TL1 Postdoctoral Scholars
From Director Gary Rosenthal, MD, FACP, Tinsley R. Harrison Professor and Chair, Department of Internal Medicine.
We are excited to announce the inaugural class of Academic Learning Health Systems Scholars at the Wake Forest School of Medicine. This NIH-funded postdoctoral training program (TL1 mechanism) is offered through the Wake Forest Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and the Division of Public Health Sciences.
Our Scholars represent a diversity of professional backgrounds. In addition to initiating a Learning Health System research project, the Scholars are completing coursework in learning health system methods that may lead to a 1-year certificate or a 2-year Masters of Science degree, through the Wake Forest Translational and Health System Science Program.
The work of each Scholar is guided by an Individual Development Plan and by a multidisciplinary mentoring committee with a primary mentor/ co-mentor, a TL1 core faculty mentor, a peer mentor, and a health system mentor. This committee assists the scholars in all aspects of the training program and helps them to gain a deeper insight into the many facets of an academic Learning Health System. All current scholars joined the program in summer 2020.
