The Clinical Scholar Program (CLINSCHOP) is a specialized, four month experience that offers selected residents interested in a career in academic medicine extra dedicated time for scholarly experiences.
Our goal is to provide insight about a career in academic medicine to residents who have a genuine interest but limited experience in clinical research. CLINSCHOP residents participate in a four-month block of research* and course work in their second year. This includes clinical research course work, a small group journal club, and seminars in clinical teaching and medical writing.
Intern applications for this program are accepted in March for the following academic year. Applicants submit a personal essay, research proposal and letters of recommendation from both their research mentor and advisor. Participants will have reduced clinical elective time. Applications are reviewed by a committee and selected in April.
*All residents in the residency program may receive up to four weeks in their second year of training for research. Additional time—up to four weeks—may be provided based on the resident’s productivity achieved during their initial four weeks of research.
