Students Funded Since 2007
The NEW TL1 Postdoctoral Program in Clinical Research and Medical Informatics is a National Research Service Award (NRSA)-funded training program comprising participating degree programs at the University of Chicago and Rush University. The program gives postdoctoral students research training in clinical and translational science along with a stipend for tuition and living expenses. Since the ITM began about ten years ago, it has awarded about $440,000 to 14 students. These TL1 scholars not only receive funding, but they also attend special workshops and present their research. In the new program, trainees can select one of two training pathways based on their research interests and training needs: the Clinical Research Pathway or the Medical Informatics Pathway.
We’re now recruiting for TL1 positions that will serve one or two years beginning July 1, 2021. Application reviews begin in January 2021 and will continue on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. The new program supports students in the following areas:
- MD clinical fellows based at an ITM institution (UChicago, Rush, IIT, Loyola, NorthShore, or Advocate) who are interested in additional research training
- Candidates with other doctoral level professional degrees (DNP, PharmD, DDS/DMD, etc.) at an ITM institution who are interested in research training
- PhD recipients committed to careers in clinical or translational research. External applicants who wish to study at an ITM institution are welcome to apply
