The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) incorporate innovative translational research training programs aimed at producing a diverse cadre of scientists who work collaboratively to rapidly translate biomedical research into clinical applications. Evaluation of these programs that emphasize team science, interdisciplinary research, and acceptance of a range of career trajectories challenge evaluators to develop outcome measures that go beyond simply counting traditional academic products, such as individual publications and grants. This presentation describes methods used at the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center to track, analyze and visualize the value and quality of translational research training
