Program for Cultural Competence in Research (PCCR)

The PCCR seeks to improve cultural competency in research in the clinical & translational workforce throughout Harvard Catalyst via web-based and in-person trainings, while working in collaboration with the Community Engagement Program, research faculty, and ongoing cultural competence training activities in the medical school. To that end, the PCCR has developed:

  • An Annotated Bibliography on Cultural Competence in Research
  • A prototype web-based Cultural Competence for Researchers module to be included in the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) used by most HMS-affiliated institutions for Institutional Review Board (IRB) Human Subjects training certification for researchers.
