For more than 100 years, Mayo Clinic has been recognized as a provider of world-class patient care in nearly every medical specialty. But from the very beginning, Mayo Clinic has also been committed to advancing the science of medicine by:

  • Conducting biomedical research to produce the treatments and medicines of the future
  • Training and mentoring the next generation of doctors and scientists who will lead the research and health care teams of tomorrow

Clinical and translational science is focused on speeding the movement (translation) of scientific discoveries into effective, accessible medical treatments that improve health.

As translation of basic biomedical discoveries depends upon the availability of a highly skilled clinical research workforce, the Mayo Clinic Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) offers education and career development programs in clinical and translational science that span the career spectrum.

The emphasis is on developing clinical and translational science as a field of study. As a result, Mayo Clinic refined and developed new educational programs for individuals at all stages of their clinical research career.
