The Oregon Students Learn and Experience Research (OSLER) Program supports training and career development in clinical and translational research for professional and Ph.D. graduate students and postdoctoral clinical and research fellows through a TL1 grant to OCTRI and is similar to an NIH NRSA T32 grant.
Benefits and eligibility
Eligible applicants include students currently in professional training (MD, DMD, PharmD, DNP), PhD graduate students, and postdoctoral clinical (MD, DMD, PharmD, DNP) and research (PhD) fellows. Predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees at OHSU, Portland State University, University of Oregon, and Oregon State University are eligible to apply.
Professional students are expected to participate in TL1 training for 1 year, and PhD graduate students and postdoctoral trainees can expect up to 2 years of training.
All research proposed for this program must involve either clinical or translational research defined as involving human subjects or populations, or research that has application to human health.
Trainees receive a monthly stipend, partial tuition and fee support, didactic coursework, journal clubs and mentored training.
OSLER TL1 applications are now closed for 2020. Applicants will be notified of application decisions in early June.
