This elective will serve to further develop the participant’s skills in clinical and/or translational research. Students must participate in a clinical or translational research project for a minimum of 4-weeks. Six to eight weeks is highly recommended. Due to the nature of clinical and translational research, it is expected that activities related to this elective may have begun with previous summer experiences (Gill Fellowship / Health Services Scholarship / other) or project and extend throughout the senior year. Students must identify a research mentor for their project, and the research mentor must submit a course evaluation at the end of the elective time. Students must receive approval of their elective in advance by the Track Directors. The participant is evaluated on the basis of attendance at all required activities as determined by the mentor, feedback from the mentor, and the preparation of a manuscript suitable for peer review in a scientific journal. Single case reports will not qualify; case series will qualify only with significant new knowledge for the field. This manuscript may also be used to satisfy the requirements for the POM IV-Track Scholarly Project.
