The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences offers a two year fellowship to train and prepare general obstetrician gynecologists to pursue a clinical research career in an academic department.
Clinical investigation includes a broad range of content and methods with human subjects such as patient-oriented, translational, epidemiologic, behavioral, outcomes, implementation or health services research. Any research topic within the scope of practice of general obstetrician gynecologists is appropriate for the fellowship training.
At the end of training, fellows will have a strong foundation in the design and conduct of clinical research with the necessary mentorship and resources to advance their career. Fellows will be well positioned to obtain extra-mural funding to launch an academic career with a focus on clinical investigation.
