COMBAT Fellow Program

The Center for COMBAT Research Fellow Program is designed to advance the professional development of young investigators with an interest in U.S. military-relevant research through mentorship and guidance in a collegial, collaborative environment. The COMBAT Fellow Program includes trainees in Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited residency or fellowship programs. 

The COMBAT Fellow Program seeks highly motivated, productive, and focused innovators aiming to change medical practice through scholarship and research to improve the lives of our nation’s warriors and to inform civilian practice.
