BRIDG T90 Program

The T90 program provides two-three years of clinical research training for doctoral-level CIH providers (e.g., ND, DAOM, DC, DPT, DO) at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. T90 trainees are matched with experienced, funded, clinical researchers who have active research projects in the domains of CIH. T90 mentors represent five schools within the University of Washington, including the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Social Work and Pharmacy. T90 trainees also receive didactic training in the methods and skills required to design and implement clinical research in the fields of CIH. T90 trainees and R90 participants also train with each other in quarterly retreats to foster mutual understanding, respect, and knowledge of trainees’ respective fields.
