NRSA T32 Primary Care Research Fellowship

The UCLA NRSA T32 Primary Care Research Fellowship stresses development of primary or ambulatory medicine physicians into independent investigators in health services research or epidemiology. This is accomplished through formal class work in the UCLA School of Public Health, an informal series of seminars led by local experts, and the development, implementation, and completion of an original, independent research project. The fellowship provides physicians with the necessary skills to become effective and creative leaders in shaping health care and health policy. Fellows complete the program with doctoral level training in the skills necessary to conduct high quality research and policy analysis, including training in clinical epidemiology, health services research, program evaluation, and biostatistics. Fellows also have access to advanced training in a wide variety of specific areas of interest such as medical informatics, geriatrics and women’s health.  Learn more about the NRSA Primary Care Research Fellowship
