Accepting Applications: Teaching and Research Scholars!

Last month we announced that applications were open for our MedStar Teaching Scholars program. The deadline for applications are due this Friday, October 9th and you can learn more about the program here

Another opportunity we are excited to announce is our 3rd annual Research Scholar Program (applications due Monday, November 9th). While our teaching scholar program is aimed for faculty/staff interested in medical education and bringing their medical education activities to the ‘next level’ by taking part in AAMC Medical Education Research Certification (MERC), the Research Scholars program is for faculty who want a career that has a substantial portion (at least 30%) in research (clinical or translational) but have not launched yet as an independent investigator. It emphasizes skill sets, mentorship and knowledge/access to resources to conduct research. The goal is to provide a select group of clinicians with the knowledge and skills to develop a major career focus conducting clinical or translational research; to design, conduct and publish clinical research projects and to write and submit grant applications; and to learn to collaborate effectively in multidisciplinary team science.

For more information on both programs, including applications, visit our website, here under the "Advanced Training Resources" heading.
