Network for Clinical Research and Training (NCRT)

Florida State University College of Medicine’s community-based model of education provides an ideal foundation for a community-based clinical research network. The FSU Network for Clinical Research and Training (NCRT) is a statewide and collaborative research network of faculty, community-based healthcare professionals and researchers that supports clinical and translational research.

This integrated network strengthens partnerships between academic institutions, healthcare professionals, community-based practices and other stakeholders to enhance and promote research collaboration. The FSU Network for Clinical Research and Training provides clinical, translational and behavioral research opportunities that are conducted in diverse “real-world” settings, including medical practices, health systems, school-based clinics and community health centers. This variation of research settings allows access to patients across the spectrum of health, gender, age, socioeconomic status and geographic location.
