Fostering the growth of a diverse clinical & translational workforce. Program for Faculty Development & Diversity Inclusion

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 Population Health Research 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.
