Approximately 20 percent of the junior faculty selected for the YCCI Scholar Program are conducting community-based research. Moreover, 15 percent (or nearly $7 million) of the total external grants awarded to YCCI Scholars are for community-based projects. Many of these Scholars work with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program and other partners in developing and performing their projects.
Each summer, the Young Scholars program offered through the Yale Center for Analytical Sciences (YCAS) offers high school students an intensive introduction to biostatistics and aspects of public health. The goal of this program is to prepare motivated students for success in college and open the door for a career in public health and computer science. Yale University faculty, graduate and professional students are involved in the program, along with teachers from local public high schools.
The National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) is an interprofessional fellowship program to prepare future clinician leaders to improve health and health care in the US through scholarship and action at the national, state, and local levels.
