Dental Service Clinical Research Fellowship


The Dental Service Clinical Research Fellowship is a one-year program that provides opportunities for training and research experience as it relates to cancer and the sequelae and complications of oncologic interventions.  Training and mentorship in the research program includes instruction in research design, methods of assessment, basic statistics, data analysis and manuscript preparation, grant writing, and ethics of clinical research.

All fellows participate in Dental Service academic courses with the goal of enhancing the research trainee’s knowledge of oncology as well as their perspective on research methodology.  Fellows are expected to develop a clinical/translational research project and carry out this project through data analysis and manuscript preparation.  Fellows are also expected to participate in and facilitate ongoing research efforts of the Dental Service as well as contribute to grant writing efforts.  By the end of the fellowship, research fellows will have conducted research projects, prepared abstracts and manuscripts, and served as first author of a manuscript and second author on several others.
