Clinical Scholars Program
The Clinical Scholars Program helps fulfill Cedars-Sinai's fundamental mission of service to the community by educating and training healthcare professionals and medical research personnel.
The program offers formal clinical-research training to those aspiring to academic and research careers. Its mission is to:
- Educate clinicians and doctoral-level professionals about the foundations of clinical and translational research—in a spirit of creativity and independence—to optimize their likelihood of success as productive clinical investigators.
- Highlight the relevance of basic scientific knowledge to human disease and teach clinical scholars how such knowledge can be translated effectively into research. The program seeks to develop clinician-investigators who are focused on research related to prediction, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human disease.
