Skills for Health and Research Professionals (SHARP) Training

Registration is open for summer trainings! Check out this year's topics below.

Our SHARP Program consists of short, intensive boot camps led by field experts to teach in-demand research skills and methods to investigators at all career levels and from any organization. Check out the official flyer with all 2024 topics to share with your colleagues.



SHARP trainings will be offered in-person, livestream virtual, or hybrid (in-person and livestream virtual). The format of each training is different, and specific workshop location details can be found on each respective training page. All trainings regardless of location are live, and are not self-paced, pre-recorded courses. Additional details about training formats, locations, transportation, and hotels are provided on our Location Details page.


Several scholarships are available for our summer trainings! The application deadline is February 29, 2024 at 11:59pm ET.
