The Department of Outcomes Research at the Cleveland Clinic typically trains about 20 clinical research fellows at any given time. Fellows generally have primary responsibility for several studies, and back-up responsibilities for several others. The department usually runs about 50 simultaneous prospective trials, and perhaps 150 registry-based studies; fellows thus get tremendous exposure to all aspects of clinical research. Substantial practical experience is complemented by weekly didactic sessions on epidemiology and biostatistics.

International applicants no longer need an ECFMG certificate or be eligible for an Ohio medical training or full license. We rarely consider applicants who do not already have published clinical research experience and/or full anesthesia training. Our fellowship program requires a two-year commitment. Typically, fellows then proceed to residency positions at United States programs. Virtually all of our international fellows get US residency positions.

Applicants can send a CV to Professor Alparslan Turan. Applications are accepted at any time.
