Yale University and Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program
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.
Yale University† scholars are prepared to be leaders in improving the nation’s health and health care. Scholars gain competence in clinical epidemiology, biostatics, community-based participatory research, health policy, and social and behavioral health issues. The scholars are trained to think creatively and rigorously about health care issues, lead organizational change, participate in policy development, and collaborate in projects to improve community health. Through long-standing relationships with community organizations, such as the Yale University-Griffin Hospital Prevention Research Center in the New Haven area, Scholars have opportunities to participate in community-based research projects.
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.
