Research Training, Graduate Courses and Degrees

REI fellows will participate in the Clinical Scientist Training Program (CSTP) at one of several possible levels. All REI fellows will be encouraged to obtain a Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation or a Masters of Public Health.

Fellows will be required, at a minimum, to complete the CAQ. To attain this certification, all fellows must complete and pass a total of 4 required, graded graduate level courses listed in the Baylor Graduate School Course Catalog including:

#1 - Fundamentals of Clinical Investigation (3 credit hours, July, Mon-Thurs 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.) during Year One of the fellowship, a clinical year.

#2 - Clinical Investigation for the Career Scientist and Research Seminar course (5 credit hours, Aug-May, Mon, Wed 4-6 p.m.) during Year Two of the fellowship, a research year.

#3 - Cell biology reproductive physiology course (3 credit hours, Oct-Dec, 4 hours/week) during Year Two of the fellowship, a research year.

- #4 #4 - Translational Biostatistics (3 credit hours, 3 hours/week, Aug-May) during Year Two of the fellowship, a research year.

Course #2 will assist the fellow in development of a research thesis, selection of an appropriate research/career mentor, and selection of a thesis review committee. This will culminate in the writing and submitting of a K23 grant, a mentored career development award that will outline the fellow’s research project.

The third year of the fellowship will be dedicated to completion of research and relevant elective course work, particularly if the fellow has chosen the option of attaining a Master’s degree.
