The Duke Clinical Research Institute has a longstanding commitment to developing the next generation of clinical researchers.

Started in 2004, the DCRI Research Fellowship Training Program is a unique two-year training program that has trained over 300 postdoctoral fellows and medical students, many of whom have remained at Duke and the DCRI. The philosophy of the program is that the most successful investigators will be able to combine superior knowledge in their field of clinical specialty with quantitative principles in an interactive, teamwork-oriented environment.

Therapeutic Areas

The training program welcomes fellows in multiple therapeutic disciplines, including cardiology, infectious disease, nephrology, neurosciences medicine, pediatrics, pulmonology, rheumatology, and surgery.
