Clinical Research / Graduate Medical Education

Clinical fellows are trained through accredited programs and through individual application to our clinical laboratories. Training at the bedside is conducted in the Clinical Research Center (CRC), our research hospital where all patients are participants in one of our formal NIH/NICHD clinical research studies, which attract a very special population of children and adults from around the world, to benefit from our medical research expertise. Our affiliate institutions in the Maryland/DC area also participate in the education of NICHD fellows.
