Einstein’s NIH funding places it in the top tier of medical schools, which means students have access to cutting-edge equipment, fully realized research studies, and a top-notch teaching faculty. Einstein faculty engage students in an extraordinarily broad range of research, with specialties in cutting-edge fields including aging, diabetes, stem cells, genomics, and bioinformatics. Six major Einstein programs have been designated NIH Centers of Excellence: the Albert Einstein Cancer Center.
The goal of the PhD in Clinical Investigation program is to provide rigorous advanced training for PhD and MD/PhD students who are interested in becoming clinical/translational investigators. It is expected that, with receipt of the PhD, these scientists will be prepared to establish independent research careers in which they utilize clinical and translational research methods to understand major issues affecting the heath and welfare of our society.
The PhD in Clinical Investigation offers an individualized curriculum that provides the overview, relevant content area and research methods needed to conduct clinical research. The NIH defines clinical research as three broad inter-related areas of enquiry:
Patient-oriented research, which includes mechanisms of human disease, clinical trials and development of new technologies. Epidemiology and behavioral studies, which includes use of large population studies, prevention studies, or mechanistic studies of disease using populations (e.g. molecular epidemiology) Health services research and Health outcomes research.
