The Clinical Sciences Scholars Program (CSSP) scholars will receive a generous start-up package from both departmental and institutional sources and will be paired with a career mentor who is a recognized leader in clinical research and whose expertise aligns with the scholar’s major area of interest.  Through the program, scholars will be integrated into a multidisciplinary network of clinical researchers, with focused attention on—and support for—career development that spans specific scientific content, clinical research methodology, and leadership skills. They will also be connected with colleagues in the basic and translational sciences.

The goals of the Clinical Sciences Scholars Program (CSSP) are to provide robust support and mentorship and develop both institutional and national leaders in the field of clinical research.
