Research Fellowships

Clinical Research Fellowships

For MD Graduates

Clinical research fellowships are one to two years in duration (July 1 to June 30) and are based at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH) and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. Fellowships are offered preferentially to physicians with at least one year of internship training and to those who wish to pursue further training in dermatology. The Lurie Children's fellowship is preferentially offered to physicians with some previous training in pediatrics.

These paid fellowships provide an opportunity for intense exposure to both investigator-initiated and sponsored research, interaction with patients and participation in didactic sessions in Dermatology at NMH and Lurie Children's.

For Predoctoral Medical Students

Visiting predoctoral clinical research fellowships are one year in duration (July 1 to June 30) and are based at NMH and Lurie Children's. Fellowships are offered to medical students who have completed M3 year and wish to complete a year dedicated to research to further their training in dermatology. These fellowships are unpaid but provide an opportunity for intense exposure to the field.
