The goal of the program is to support members of the All Children's Hospital community in developing skills in clinical research and educational scholarship. The year-long program, which began this past weekend, uses a structured curriculum to assist clinicians with project development, study design, biostatistics and presentation of findings through poster presentations and article submissions.
