The Portugal Clinical Scholars Research Training (PTCSRT) program is designed to provide in-depth training in theory and skills that are necessary to forge a successful career in clinical research.

The program curriculum includes seven intensive two-day workshops over the two-year curriculum, twice-weekly online recorded lectures, development, and presentation of two Capstone proposals, working in teams, and satisfactory completion of all assessments. All activities are supported by interactive webinars held by Harvard faculty.

The PTCSRT program is a collaboration between HMS and Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT). It is fully supported by the Portuguese government through FCT, and is tuition-free for accepted students.
