TRP Heroes Spotlight: Dr. Chris Klinger

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us how important frontline healthcare workers are for the normal functioning of our worlds. To support and celebrate these brave hearts, the Translational Research Program launched "TRP Heroes", an initiative to...

A Transformative Education

At the TRP our goal is not to teach. Our goal is not to lecture or have you memorize some datum likely to change before you finish your degree, or that a search engine can find faster than you can formulate the question.

The TRP is a community and a mindset of people who are resources, facilitators, mentors, peers, guides and catalysts whose aim is to help those, who are looking to learn, to explore, to push the boundaries of their experience to seek knowledge.

The TRP is not intended to be divided as a degree of teacher-task-masters and students–those who know one truth and those hoping to memorize that truth. Instead, the program strives to be a community of people motivated to learn, to seek knowledge, to help others to be more and do more. In this community, the focus is not on the content but on understanding the processes, the mechanisms of creative problem-solving and innovation.

Students learn alongside the faculty–we learn together and from each other. We learn from real-world contexts and from failure–not from arbitrary grades or standardized testing–because our collective goals are not to pass a test or earn a grade but to improve lives, to learn to champion change that will improve the lives of others.

Now, we are starting to seek people join our 2021 cohort. Those motivated to learn, those seeking to move beyond their comfort zones, to challenge ambiguity, who want to focus on the processes of innovating of generating new ideas and championing change for positive impact are the kindred spirits we seek–these are the people we seek to join our ranks.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in a different kind of graduate program, who is motivated to learn by doing and is seeking a transformative education, then we need to talk. Come to an information session, read the website, arrange a consultation with someone from our team.

One day soon, we, trainees, mentors, facilitators, students, residents, PI’s, researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals, and many others, will form a global network of professional translators, who think globally but work locally to improve the health and well-being of people in our communities. And together we will transform health, care and medicine.

Join us.

Black History Month Spotlight: Abimbola Saka

Abimbola Saka“I was born and raised in Nigerian; the Federal Republic of Nigeria Is a sovereign country in West Africa, comprising 36 states, with Lagos being the most popular and most populated state. Nigeria gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1960.

For me, Black History Month is a month to take pride in my unique culture and heritage as Yoruba Nigerian and highlight the successes and struggles within the black community.

As an International Medical Graduate and a recent graduate of the Translational Research Program at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, I have often been the only black or Nigerian in my class, which often inspired me to highlight the need for diversity in medical education.

Appreciating and highlighting black people’s success should not be limited to black history month alone. I encourage others to unlearn what they know about the black community and be open-minded to learning and welcoming more black people and their cultures into medical education. As an alumnus of the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, I see the Faculty’s measures to promote diversity, which encouraged me to become a member of the IMS EDI committee.

I attribute my academic success and accomplishments as an MD and a Translational Researcher to the support of my family, friends, God, and allies in the Translational Research Program and other institutions I have attended. They have helped me to become who I am today. As an alumnus of the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, I look forward to continuing my training to become a trained physician and a researcher.”
