Clinical Faculty Scholars Program

CFSP GroupThe Clinical Faculty Scholars Program is designed to assist emerging investigators in establishing independence in health services research. Through guided project development, educational seminars, grant writing classes, and mentorship participants are helped to obtain a career development award (K08, K23 or foundation equivalent), or a first independent, extramural project award (R21, R01 or equivalent). Each Faculty Scholar will submit an individual career development plan and receive regular individual mentorship from four experienced senior researchers in clinical epidemiology, health services research, biostatistics, and health economics.

Program Expectations

  • Participating scholars must be able to attend weekly "Work-In-Progress" sessions held Wednesdays from 7:30AM-9:00AM on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Presentations are delivered on a rotating basis giving each participant the opportunity to speak and receive feedback 6 or 7 times during the year.
  • Monthly special topics sessions are also required and take place on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 9:00AM-11:00AM. Past session topics include: Technical Writing Workshop, Mock Grant Review, How Translational Informatics can Jump Start your Career, Care and Feeding of your Clinical Trial, How to Revise a Grant for Funding, and Tips on Running a Research Shop.
  • Regular, individual mentor meetings are an integral part of CFSP. Each participant will negotiate a schedule of ongoing meeting times with their primary mentor to discuss career goals.

The CFSP enrolls 4-5 junior faculty members per year from a variety of clinical departments. Faculty members from affiliated institutions (i.e. Denver VA, Denver Health, National Jewish) also are eligible. Physicians, other clinicians, and doctorally-trained researchers in disciplines relevant to clinical-translational research may apply. Prospective applicants must have tuition support from their home department/ division and obtain at least 50% protected time for research during the two years of enrollment. See application information for more information.
