Pre-Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Research

A Focus on Research and Scholarship

Yale School of Nursing offers several post-doctoral fellowships that provide fellows the opportunity to gain mentored training in the development of independent programs of research. Fellows participate in coursework, research seminars, faculty-sponsored and independent research, and national/international conferences. Mentoring in grantsmanship and dissemination of research are integral components of the training. 

Current training programs include the National Clinician Scholars Program at Yale, and the Self and Family Management of Chronic Illnesses.

The National Clinician Scholars Program

The National Clinician Scholars Program is a 2-year interprofessional fellowship designed to prepare future clinician leaders to improve health and health care in the U.S.  Applications for the next cohort (starting July 2017) were due August 15, 2016. More information on the National Clinician Scholars Program.
