Training Program

Educational Objectives

The program is structured to provide each fellow with a progressive experience in the conduct of clinical or basic research, depending on each fellow’s background and interests. This progressive approach is predicated on the fact that the majority of prospective fellows have had limited exposure to the entire research process. During the first year, the fellowship training structure begins with a clinical focus which evolves to a primary research emphasis during the second year. The third year will be a balance of clinical and research responsibilities in preparation for productive research careers in academic medicine.
