The nonclinical portion of the fellowship is flexible. We expect each fellow to participate in some area of research related to critical care. We have facilities to do clinical and laboratory physiologic and molecular biological studies. A laboratory with technical, financial and computer support is available. The varied interests of our faculty can introduce the fellow to a wide variety of investigative skills
Research meetings will be held every month on the fourth Thursday of that month between 1:30 and 2:30, just after the fellow's didactic lectures.
Fellows on clinical service will be freed of clinical duties so that they may attend this meeting.
This meeting will serve as a forum to discuss proposed, on-going, or completed research.
- Attempts will be made to discuss only one research project per meeting in order to allow time for in-depth discussion.
Fellows who are interested in an academic career are encouraged to consider an MS degree program combined with their clinical CCM fellowship. MS programs are available in Epidemiology and Health Services Research are available throough the Department of Health Reseach and Policy on campus. Support for this program will be provided by our division.
