Research Training Program

Geriatric Clinical Epidemiology and Aging Related Research (T32)

Yale University offers a two to three year training program in Geriatric Clinical Epidemiology and Aging-Related Research, sponsored by the National Institute on Aging. The goal of the program is to provide highly qualified fellows (MDs or PhDs) with outstanding training in geriatric clinical epidemiology and/or translational aging research under the mentorship of experienced investigators in geriatric medicine and gerontology. Trainees will have access to resources and expertise through the Geriatric Medicine Program, the Program on Aging/Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center, the Program in Clinical Epidemiology/Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program, the Investigative Medicine Program, and the School of Public Health.  A Master of Health Science (MHS) degree is available for physicians who successfully complete the training program.

Candidates who have a PhD should have completed their doctoral training in areas such as (but not limited to) gerontology, public health, epidemiology, biostatistics, psychology, or biology, and should be committed to an academic career in aging-related research.

Minority candidates are encouraged to apply.

US citizenship or permanent residence is required.
