The UCLA CTSI TL1 Summer Fellowship Program (SFP) is for health professional students (medical, nursing and dental) during their training. The program will provide each individual with early exposure to the practice of interdisciplinary, community-partnered, translational (clinical implementation or public health), or health services research in urban underserved communities. Each student in the program will attend a weekly seminar (for 8 weeks) where they will hear about topics such as introduction to clinical and population research methods, health disparities research, access to care, quality of care, community-partnered research, ethics of conducting community-oriented research, study design, measurement of outcomes in communities, and introduction to comparative effectiveness and cost effectiveness analyses. Each student in this program will be paired with a faculty mentor who conducts either clinical or community-partnered or health services research and will be expected to work on a project with the student mentee. Findings from this work will be presented at the DGSOM Josiah Brown Poster Fair with possible opportunity for publication in a peer reviewed journal. Mentorship activities will provide the trainee with first-hand experience working on disparities-related research projects.
