Investigator Awarded $1.5 Million Grant

Published October 2005

Joel Tsevat, MD, of the Department of Internal Medicine, the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) and the Institute for the Study of Health, has been awarded a five-year, $1.5 million K30 grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop new clinical research curricula for fellows and junior faculty from UC, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the VAMC.

"In the past, we have sent many of our fellows and junior faculty off to other institutions to take courses in clinical research methods to the tune of $30,000 per student," says Dr. Tsevat. "The grant will allow us to add new courses and tracks here, making training more accessible to those who couldn't leave town for a whole summer. In the process, it will save UC a lot of money."

The new curricula will focus on developing or expanding new program tracks in epidemiology and clinical therapeutics, increasing methodological expertise in all core areas of clinical research and fostering multidisciplinary instruction among all trainees.
