The Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program allows young physicians committed to clinical medicine to acquire new skills and training in the non-biological sciences that are important to medical care. The program offers two years of graduate-level study and research, as part of a university-based, post-residency training program, in priority areas designated by participating institutions—three of which have a Prevention Research Center. The program aims to integrate scholars’ previous clinical training with skills in program development and research methodology to help them find solutions for issues in public policy, community health, and health services research.

University of Michigan† strives to enhance scholars’ ability to design policy-relevant, multidisciplinary research projects. Each scholar receives a master’s degree after completing an integrated, intensive, year-long curriculum. Scholars design and conduct research projects in their second year. The research projects are community-based and conducted through the Prevention Research Center, the Detroit Community Academic Urban Research Center, or other units.

† Scholars may be eligible to be placed at one of two other Prevention Research Centers at Yale University or the University of California at Los Angeles.

The program is intended for MDs who are U.S. citizens training in any of the medical or surgical specialty fields, including internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, or family medicine.

2-year post-residency training program.
