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."
