The Clinical Investigator Track requires a minimum of 2 years in addition to the 12-month training in the core curriculum. A training committee must oversee the progress of the fellow. The fellow must present a formal report or manuscript submission to the training committee and the university/training community at the completion of training.
Didactic training is an essential part of the training plan for the Clinical Investigator Pathway. Suggested coursework areas include:
The ultimate test of success for fellows in both the Clinical Investigator Track and the Basic Investigator Track is the ability of the trainee to write and publish papers and to submit and secure independent fellowship/grant support.
The training committee should meet with the fellow prior to initiating the research project and on a yearly basis (at least) throughout the course of the additional training. The committee should provide a written report to the fellow after each meeting summarizing the recommendations and conclusions of the committee members.
