  • Leverage core Academic Health Center, Medical School and Office for Clinical Research resources to support clinical research activities

Faculty Development

The program will

  • Help faculty acquire didactic training in clinical research
  • Assist in the development of a focused area of clinical research
  • Provide structured mentoring (in conjunction with other Department of Medicine faculty) directed toward achieving success in acquiring extramural funding, publications and promotion
