The Clinician-Researcher Track is for individuals who wish to pursue a career in clinical research. This track provides the skills and experiences necessary to develop, execute, interpret, and secure funding for clinical and health services research studies. The foundation of this track is the Master of Science in Clinical Research Program, sponsored by the Institute for Clinical Research Education (ICRE). Fellows in the track complete a mentored research project, develop a full-length grant proposal ready for submission, and participate in the clinical and teaching activities of the Division of General Internal Medicine.
The Clinician-Educator Track is designed to train future leaders in medical education. The foundation of this track is the Master of Science in Medical Education Program, which is also sponsored by the ICRE. Fellows in this track follow an integrated program of didactic material and precepted teaching experiences to enhance their skills in classroom and clinical instruction, curriculum development, professional leadership, medical education, and medical administration. In addition, they take core research curriculum courses offered through the ICRE, complete a mentored research or curriculum development project, and participate in the clinical and teaching activities of the Division of General Internal Medicine.
Fellows in either track may further concentrate their efforts on a particular area of interest, including the following: Health Services Research, Clinical Epidemiology, Women's Health, Palliative Care, Medicine-Pediatrics, Underserved Populations, and Health Care Disparities.
Physicians wishing to apply for a fellowship in the Division of General Internal Medicine should submit a formal application form, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of support (one of which should be from the applicant's department head or a representative designated by the department head). Applicants must be board-eligible or board-certified in internal medicine by the time of entry into the fellowship. For application information, click here.
