Clinical Research Scholar Fellowship

Clinical Research Scholar Fellowship

UCSD Emergency medicine is excited to offer a two-year clinical research scholar fellowship beginning in July of 2010. We will be accepting one or two fellows per year.

The UCSD Department of Emergency Medicine Clinical Research Scholar program is designed to train promising EM investigators in the field of emergency medicine research. Research scholars will be paired with a senior faculty member in the department, with the goal of helping academic-minded emergency physicians become funded clinical research scientists.

The duration of the fellowship is two years. During the first year of the program, research scholars who do not have an advanced degree in research methodology (ie, MPH or PhD) will concentrate on didactic coursework and on conducting preliminary work on a research project in the scholar's area of interest. During the second year, scholars will finalize their research projects and develop at least one major grant proposal.

Applicants must be board-certified or board-eligible emergency physicians. We will accept physicians who have completed a four year residency in Emergency Medicine or those who have completed a three year residency program and have at least one year of post-graduate experience.

Applicants from three year residencies can apply, but will have modified clinical activities during the first year of the fellowship. If interested in the CREST program or MPH, candidates must be accepted separately. Acceptance into one of these programs is expected for a more complete and robust fellowship experience, though not required for acceptance into the UCSD clinical research scholar program.
