New 2012-2013 NIH Medical Research Fellows Program-due Jan 17,2012http://www.cc.nih.gov/training/mrsp/index.html
How many? This new program will ultimately have a capacity of approximately 70 students, with a goal for the initial 2012-2013 class of at least 40 students. For a select group of students, an additional year of support may be available to allow a continuation of ongoing studies where this is judged to be in the best interests of the student and the mentor.
Eligibility: The Medical Research Scholars Program is designed for students who have completed their initial clinical rotations but does not exclude students with strong research interests from applying prior to having completed their clinical rotations.
Type of Research: bench, the bedside, and between both—including computational biology, medical informatics, and other emerging areas of contemporary science.
The program will provide the opportunity for clinician-scientists and future physicians, dentists, and veterinarians to carry out research across the full spectrum of laboratory, translational, and clinical opportunities in the interests of the public health.
Medical, Osteopathic, Dental and Veterinary Students (40 in first year, thereafter 70)
Mentors & Scholars project chosen after acceptance into program
One year of full-time basic, translational or clinical research
Research Training Curriculum, several options:
seminal basic, translational and clinical research topics highlighting the continuum of discovery
clinical protocol development and the conduct of human subjects research
participation in clinical rounds focusing on the rich patient population at the NIH
Scholars will interact with NIH leaders—institute directors, scientific and clinical directors, and principal investigators—and established investigators from academic medical centers and universities.
A regular lecture series featuring these individuals will provide opportunities for the participants to learn more about the scientific discovery process, as well as science policy, issues in bioethics, and emerging technologies.
