- Purpose: The purpose of this RFA is to support the early career development of clinical researchers who would be expected to achieve excellence in their ability to design and oversee research in multidisciplinary team settings, and have a high potential to become leaders of various fields of clinical research critical to the overall mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). To accomplish this aim, the NIH invites institutions with well-established clinical research infrastructures to submit applications for the establishment of Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Programs. Career Development Programs supported under this RFA must include a broad representation of clinically relevant disciplines and professions (including but not limited to internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, statistics, nursing, psychology, and engineering) and their various specialties and sub-spec!
ialties. Programs must include a structured core didactic component and a practical training component in various aspects of the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical research. Individuals should be trained in team research settings and will be known as NIH Clinical Research Scholars (CR Scholars).
