Clinical Scholars Program

*Application deadline Feb. 29th, 2012. Fellows strongly encouraged to apply.

Resident physicians are invited to apply for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Clinical Scholars program, which offers a master’s degree graduate-level study and research in a university-based, post residency training program. The program provides scholars with generous funding and involves two years of study with protected time for research.

The RWJF Clinical Scholars program fosters the development of physicians who will lead the transformation of Americans’ health and health care. These future leaders will conduct innovative research and work with communities, organizations, practitioners and policy-makers to address issues essential to the health and well-being of all Americans.

Program highlights include:

Four participating institutions will be recruiting scholars to begin their programs in July 2012: the University of California, Los Angeles; the University of Michigan; the University of Pennsylvania; and Yale University. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will provide funding for the stipends and insurance for 10 of the Scholars through VA Medical Centers affiliated with these universities. The VA provides additional support through faculty time, clinical resources, and research databases.

Boston, MA. June 2010- The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) hosted its inaugural Vascular Surgery Jeopardy Competition at the 2010 Vascular Annual Meeting for vascular surgery trainees, general surgery residents, and medical students. Six teams were chosen to compete, each composed three members: one medical student and a combination of two general surgery residents and/or one general surgery resident and one vascular surgery trainee.  The Jeopardy categories covered a wide spectrum of knowledge ranging from Anatomy and Arterial Disease to Pharmacology and History, and was moderated by Dr. Melina Kibbe (Northwestern).  After two heated rounds, Team West triumphed over Team Mid Atlantic in Final Jeopardy, taking home the prizes and title as the inaugural champions of the SVS Jeopardy Event. Cash prizes were awarded to the winners and a great time was had by all.
