Clinical Research Fellowship

The OHSU Dermatology Clinical Research unit is pleased to offer a 1 year Clinical Research Fellowship Program. Under the direction of Eric Simpson, MD, fellows will be introduced to the fundamental principles of conducting clinical research for new therapies in dermatology including understanding how to design, implement and analyze trials with IRB approval, conduct trials with ethical and good practice standards, and to organize results for publication and reporting. Fellows will have an opportunity to participate in dermatology resident and faculty research, and design and conduct studies of their own, in addition to participating in ongoing and new projects in the department. Trainees will be expected to present their work at regional and national meetings and publish their findings when appropriate.

Applications for the program starting in July 2019 are not being accepted at this time.
