OBJECTIVES: The Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship (DDCF) Program at Yale will offer students the opportunity to pursue a career in clinical research by completing a one year combined didactic and mentored clinical research training program for students from any medical school in the U.S. Yale University School of Medicine, a national leader in clinical and basic science research, ranks fifth nationwide amongst U.S. medical schools in total NIH funding, and ranks third in the percentage of graduates who select careers in research. With a world renowned faculty, a long tradition of a required M.D. thesis in the curriculum, two NIH-funded Clinical Research Centers and expanding programs in clinical and translational research, Yale offers extraordinary opportunities for DDCF Fellows. Students supported by the Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship Program will have full access to all Yale School of Medicine educational offerings in clinical research. The program seeks to train students in critical thinking; to provide them with methodological skills; and to expose them to a wide range of topics so that they are prepared for the creative challenges in clinical research. All students will be required to begin their year of fellowship by taking the Principles of Clinical Research course in the summer. Two additional courses will be required, including an Introduction to Biostatistics and Practical and Ethical Issues in Clinical Investigation. Students will also have the option of taking additional elective courses.

ELIGIBILITY
All applicants should have completed two or more years of medical school prior to beginning the Doris Duke Fellowship. Students in good standing, enrolled at any accredited U.S. medical school, are eligible to apply. A completed application, official medical school transcript, and two recommendation letters will be required for consideration.
Interviews will be conducted in February after all applications are received. Up to five candidates from other schools will be invited to Yale to interview with the Program Advisory Group and meet with potential mentors. Dr. Forrest and the Program Advisory Group will make final selections. One to two student Fellows will be selected from this group.

FUNDING
A stipend of $28,000 annually will be provided to all Fellows. The policy of Yale University School of Medicine is to charge medical students an extended registration fee of $400 during the year of their fellowship. Applicants from other medical schools will not be charged tuition and should consult with their home school for information regarding tuition and fees. Funds are available to offset health costs, recruiting visits, travel costs to national scientific meetings and, with pre-approval, continuation of research after the fellowship year. (cas)
