Fellowships

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; nor do they need to be eligible for an Ohio medical training or full license. For salaried positions, we rarely consider applicants who do not already have published clinical research experience and/or full anesthesia training. Those positions require a two-year commitment. Typically, fellows then proceed to residency positions at United States programs, and nearly all get US residency positions. Fellows who are funded by their home institutions or countries are welcome for any period. Reasonable English proficiency is necessary.

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