The research training program, NCRTP-HepC, is a public private-partnership designed to raise national training standards, promote leadership and enhance awareness of Hepatitis C. The NCRTP-HepC is designed to foster learning and collaboration amongst clinical, basic biomedical, social/cultural/environmental/population health and health systems/services, including disciplines in medicine, nursing and social sciences to more effectively impact reduction in the burden of disease caused by hepatitis C.

The NCRTP-HepC recruits and provides stipend support and training to graduate, post-doctoral students and MDs who have demonstrated excellence early in their careers. Trainees are applicants that are registered with a graduate program at one of the ten institutions. The training program employs the knowledge and experience of thirty mentors across Canada from multiple disciplines that have played a major role in recent advances in hepatitis C research and their ability to train excellent researchers.
