Following the first year of clinical training, fellows on the research track will have an additional 2 years to complete advanced training and work on specific research projects. Some will decide to enroll in the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation, while others may elect to take advanced coursework in Immunology or allied fields. We endeavor to offer tailored graduate training to our fellows to further enrich and enhance their skills in preparation for future academic careers. This research pathway is supported through our NIH T32 grant.
Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation (GTPCI):
This program trains clinicians to become clinician scientists and is jointly sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health. This requires one year of full-time academic classroom work, which culminates in a Master of Health Science degree in Clinical Investigation.
Precision Medicine at Johns Hopkins:
The inHealth strategic initiative at Johns Hopkins is revolutionizing our approach to discovery and health care delivery by utilizing multidisciplinary assets throughout the University (Medicine, Engineering, Nursing, Public Health, Applied Physics Lab, etc) to leverage the latest in data science, analytics and connectivity. The Precision Medicine Analytics Platform (PMAP) is an active, secure and HIPAA-compliant environment which integrates, stores and analyzes data from a variety of sources and is a rich resource available to all Hopkins investigators, including fellows. There are currently 27 Precision Medicine Centers of Excellence actively using PMAP, and include the Myositis Center and Scleroderma Center.
