Clinical Sciences Scholars Program, University of Michigan Medical School



In the past 10-15 years the University of Michigan (U-M) has put forth major institutional efforts to develop the infrastructure for conducting high-quality clinical research and supporting outstanding clinician-scientists. With this growing infrastructure comes the opportunity for the recruitment and development of outstanding faculty whose focus is clinical research. In response, the U-M Medical School has launched a new Clinical Sciences Scholars Program (CSSP), which will complement the longstanding and highly successful Biological Sciences Scholars Program (BSSP).
Program Description

CSSP scholars will receive a generous start-up package and will be paired with a career mentor – a recognized leader in clinical research whose expertise aligns with the scholar’s major area of interest. Scholars will be integrated into a multidisciplinary network of clinical researchers, with focused attention on – and support for – career development. It is anticipated that most scholars will be appointed on the Instructional Track, with tenure or the possibility of tenure, although other track appointments may be considered.
