Overview

A broad range of clinical, epidemiologic, and laboratory research opportunities are available. Fellows have the opportunity to develop an individualized research program that will prepare them for their future career plans. Fellows have the opportunity of developing a research program with clinical investigators and basic scientists at one of our institutions, including the University of Illinois Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy and the University of Illinois School of Public Health. Each trainee develops a program in conjunction with a faculty research advisor who works with the Fellow throughout the period of training. Research plans are reviewed and approved by the Fellowship Program Committee. Fellows will receive written evaluations of their progress and research skills from their preceptors and will have a number of different lectures and experiences that will assure success in their research efforts, including the sessions on study design and biostatistics during journal club, faculty research presentations, and the lectures on conducting research given at the departmental lecture series. New trainees are provided with a list of faculty publications showing the research activities of the sections at each of the training sites.
