Under the guidance of our expert faculty, fellows have numerous opportunities to participate in existing projects or initiating their own. They receive Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) human subjects research and institutional review board training early in the program and throughout the two years, learn key elements to successful research, including IRB procedures, grantsmanship and statistical analysis. Prior to graduation, each fellow is expected to complete at least one research or quality improvement project leading to national presentation or publication.
