This Infectious Disease Outcomes Research fellowship program is designed to develop competencies to practicing clinical scientists. The fellow will gain experience in protocol design, data collection/analysis, preparation and the publication of scientific manuscripts. Projects are focused on the epidemiology and clinical and economic outcomes of patients with infectious diseases. Over the course of the 2-3 year program, the fellow will develop 3-4 research proposals for which he or she will serve as primary investigator. Research accounts for approximately 80% of the fellowship responsibilities but will also participate in classroom and clinical teaching. Graduate level coursework at no cost is available, and fellows have the option to extend their fellowship for a 3rd year and complete the M.P.H. at Wayne State University.
