The program combines three levels of training: i) two week short courses teach clinical research methodologies applicable to transfusion medicine to a dozen trainees and are held in country in Africa, Latin America and Asia; ii) the most promising trainees from the short courses are offered 6-8 week internships at the Research Institute in San Francisco during which time they take coursework at UCSF and perform mentored research at the Research Institute; and iii) selected trainees are further mentored in manuscript writing, grantsmanship and potentially Master’s or PhD thesis research.
4) Summer Internships:
Each summer, this program offers several 8-10 week paid internships to selected undergraduate and graduate students interested in mentored basic science or epidemiology research with one of the Research Institute investigators. Students will participate in seminars, presentations and institutional events.
