This SAEM accredited fellowship is designed to train the fellow in the ethical conduct of clinical research and to provide the skills necessary to obtain extramural funding and to become an independent physician-scientist in emergency medicine. The program will consist of: (1) intensive mentorship by a team of highly-skilled, independently-funded scientists; (2) obtaining a master-level degree in epidemiology, clinical sciences, health services, biostatistics, public health, or related discipline in conjunction with the Colorado School of Public Health, the University of Colorado Denver, and the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute; (3) initiating and completing a substantial research project, selected on the basis of the project’s educational value, its clinical or scientific merit, and on the fellow’s long-term research interests; and (4) working as an attending physician in the emergency department at Denver Health Medical Center or the University of Colorado Hospital.
This fellowship requires a two-year commitment to complete both the advanced degree and other research training requirements. The successful candidate will be a recent graduate of an accredited emergency medicine residency program who wishes to pursue a career in clinical research.
