As an academic center of excellence backed by the University of Louisville, an important part of our strategy revolves around education. Through our various training programs, we provide multi-disciplinary learning opportunities for students, clinical investigators, research associates and other health care professionals. By offering a combination of hands on learning experiences and classroom-style instruction, we commit ourselves to teaching university-based clinical and translational research.
