Training in Clinical Research

Our Clinical Research Training Program has long been acknowledged as a leader in the field and has often served as a model for other institutions through its performance and publications on the subject

By incorporating resources from the world-renowned University of Washington School of Public Health and the Institute of Translational Health Sciences, trainees are exposed to a broad range of specialties, schools of thought, and experts from across the University. Many fellows who choose this pathway will obtain a Masters or PhD in areas such as Epidemiology, Health Services Research, or Biostatistics giving them the tools they need to become more well-rounded physicians and researchers. 

Faculty and fellows within the Clinical Research Program meet once a week at the Clinical Research Works in Progress conference to present on planned and active research. Here trainees are exposed to a well-developed network of outstanding clinical researchers who can offer guidance on everything from methodologies to career development.
