- This RFA invites applications for developing and implementing novel, flexible institutional Predoctoral Clinical Research Training Programs that will promote clinical research training among predoctoral medical, dental, nursing, and other allied health students and provide efficient entry of interested students into clinical research careers. Training Programs are given the flexibility to provide interested students access to a level of clinical research training that is appropriate to their career stage and level of interest, and to accommodate their changing training needs as they progress through their predoctoral training. The programs are expected to provide a range of experiences, including core didactic components, summer or short research experiences, and an intensive clinical research training program. The intensive training core will support the equivalent of 10-12 full-time trainees enrolled in a year-long non-degree program, a MS program !
(with a concurrent doctoral degree), or a PhD program.
