The DIAMOND project is interested in exploring collaborative opportunities between the CTSAs. DIAMOND is an NCATS-funded online learning community that showcases education and training resources for clinical and translational research professionals. The Diamond Portal is an online repository of competency-based education and training resources and assessment materials that have been developed and contributed by CTSA sites and partner organizations.
The Portal is free for anyone to use, and continues to grow in both scope and reach. Since its launch in September 2018, the DIAMOND Portal has received more than 275 resources from 15 contributing CTSA institutions, clinical research professional associations, and private companies. In fact, DIAMOND has been accessed by individuals in more than 25 countries and currently has more than eight users a day visit the Portal.
Diamond is aiming for a goal of having 20 more CTSA institutions upload at least five educational/assessment offerings to the DIAMOND Portal by the end of 2020 and wants CTSA institutions to be a part of this growing community supported by NCATS and CLIC.
