Career Development & Training

The Working Group has divided its activities into two main activities with specialized individuals working on both activities. One Group is focusing on the education and research career development for new and established researchers. The other is focusing on the research education needs of health professionals. 

Both Groups are working to identify specific education and training programs that will support a wide range of researchers and enable VCH Research Institute to meet its goal to be recognized internationally as an International Centre for Research Training for each stage of the translational research process.
