I bring my own NIH –funded clinical research career studying HIV and drug use to my current focus on Education, Training and Career Development under the auspices of the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research and the Office of Medical Education at Einstein. I run several training programs that offer a strong foundation in clinical research methods as well as research opportunities to conduct mentor-guided research projects. The Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) is a two-year master’s program that combines a structured program of courses in epidemiology, biostatistics, data analysis and bioethics with a mentored research experience, leading to the completion of a hypothesis-driven, original research paper suitable for publication. The Ph.D. in Clinical Investigation is a track in Einstein’s graduate division through which Ph.D. and M.D.-Ph.D. students study with a member of Einstein’s growing clinical and translational research faculty. It is expected that with receipt of the Ph.D. and M.S., these scientists meaningfully contribute to improving the health and welfare of our society using clinical and translational research methods.
As Director of Medical Student Research, I oversee programs to promote a mission of Einstein, which is to train academic physicians. As all medical students must write a Scholarly Paper, our office provides help finding a mentor, planning a project and oversees a menu of research fellowships for students. The newest opportunity “SOAR,” is a scholarly concentration program which offers a mentor-guided research experience that spans the four years of medical school.
