The goal of the Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship is to encourage medical students to pursue careers in clinical research. Since 2001, the Clinical Research Fellowship (CRF) has supported medical students to take a year out from school to experience clinical research firsthand in a program that combines a mentored research project and didactic training. The program is administered through 12 research-intensive U.S. medical schools that are responsible for overseeing the selection of applicants and providing the mentored research experience. International fellowships are available through six schools. A stipend, health insurance, and financial support to attend a year-end meeting as well as supplementary funds for research and training are provided to each fellow.
As of July 2012, the CRF program has supported a total of 1,068 fellows, with 104 fellows in the current (2012-2013) class. The CRF program will conclude with the class finishing in June 2013. More information about the conclusion of the Clinical Research Fellowship can be found here.
International Clinical Research Fellowships (ICRF) will continue at six schools. View ICRF information here.
