NIH-sponsored Post-doctoral Fellowship Training Resources
Training Program in Clinical Research: The Training Program in Clinical Research is a 2-year program with a specialized curriculum that trains health care professionals for academic careers in clinical research and leads to a Master of Science degree in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis.
Postdoctoral Research Training Program : The Postdoctoral Research Training Program, offered through the University of Michigan Medical School and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, provides an excellent didactic and hands-on introduction to state-of-the-art cell and molecular biological research.
Program in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis (OJ/OC): The On Job/On Campus (OJ/OC) Master of Science (M.S.) program in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis (CRDSA) is designed for health care professionals who are involved in clinical research. It helps them develop expertise in research design and statistical analysis while continuing their professional employment.
School of Public Health : A traditional two-year Masters of Public Health (MPH) program in Biostatistics and Outcomes research can be earned from the School of Public Health. Additionally, summer courses in epidemiology are available.
Multidisciplinary Program in Biomedical Engineering: The Biomedical Engineering Program benefits from its location in the midst of the Medical School and College of Engineering as well as a strong Basic Sciences Program. It offers an exciting interdisciplinary research environment and training in emerging areas that combine engineering with biomedical sciences.
Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR): The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) is here to enable and enhance clinical and translational research. We do this by being a catalytic partner who educates, funds, connects, and supports research teams at U-M. Think of our helpful and knowledgeable staff as your extended research team.
Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU) : The Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU) provides the clinical staff, resources, and infrastructure necessary to conduct human clinical research protocols at the University of Michigan.
Kidney Epidemiology and Cost Center (KECC) : The Kidney Epidemiology and Cost Center (KECC) coordinates outcome increments for all ESRD patients in Michigan and nationwide.
Renal Research Institute (RRI) Consortium with Academic Centers : The University of Michigan has entered into a consortium with the Renal Research Institute together with the University of California at San Francisco, the University of North Carolina and the Albany Medical Center . Together, these Centers have an extensive population of pre-ESRD and ESRD patients who will facilitate clinical trials supported in part by $1.5 million annual research funds provided to the RRI research group by Fresenius Medical Care (U.S.). The projects to be supported at The University of Michigan include development of the pre-ESRD database, optimization of monitoring strategies for vascular access and evaluation of therapies for acute renal failure treatment in the ICU setting. The collaborating Centers meet several times each year to review progress in the various research areas and to facilitate interactions and collaborations in the areas of interest and new areas to be developed. This effort provides an excellent opportunity for trainees to work in a multi-center setting for the optimization of clinical research and adds an additional clinical research feature to the Training Program environment.
Arbor Research Collaborative for Health: The Arbor Research Collaborative for Health (formerly the University Renal Research and Education Association (URREA)) is an internationally recognized not-for-profit research organization that conducts large health outcomes research studies. Arbor Research collaborates with KECC; the two are located in the same building in downtown Ann Arbor.
