Supporting Physician-Scientists

Following the comprehensive clinical experiences of the first year of fellowship, trainees spend the majority of the second year and third years of fellowship devoted to basic, translational or clinical research. A variety of research opportunities are available throughout the Department of Medicine and across other Departments at BIDMC, including Surgery, Pathology, Radiology and Palliative Care. Fellows also have an opportunity to engage in research projects at fellow Harvard teaching hospitals—most of which are just a block or two from BIDMC’s main campus—and at many other biomedical research institutions throughout Boston.

Supporting Our Fellows

Faculty members will meet with fellows early on in their clinical fellowship to discuss research interests and long-term career goals. We will assist fellows in identifying faculty mentors with whom fellows may wish to work. While we are unable to guarantee support for fellows who choose to pursue research opportunities outside of BIDMC, our goal is to help fellows craft programs that best serve them in achieving their long-term career goals.
