CRSPThe Clinical Research Scholars Program (CRSP) is an intensive mentored research career development program. The objective of the CRSP is to support the development of successful clinical, translational and outcomes researchers among junior faculty affiliated with Children's. This goal is accomplished through a structured program of financial support, educational seminars and mentoring by dedicated CRSP faculty.

The CRSP supports career development in a wide range of research areas, including the mechanisms and treatment of diseases of children, as well as research related to areas such as patient safety and quality improvement.

The program is administered by Program Director Dr. Margaret Rosenfeld, Associate Program Director Dr. Joseph Flynn and the Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR) Business Office. The program is being piloted for two years in the CCTR with the intention to ultimately become a Seattle Children's Research Institute-wide initiative.
