Orientation Activity

viernes, 10 de octubre del 2014

Dear  All:  

As you know, the postdoctoral Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Research (MSc), is a joint program that started in 2002 as a collaboration between the UPR-MSC School of Health Professions and School of Medicine and has been very successful in training more than seventy (70) scholars as new clinical researchers.

The program is in the process of dissemination and recruitment of outstanding candidates for the academic year 2015-2016. 

For this purpose we are asking your collaboration in identifying  potential candidates that could attend or participate through Go To Meeting of our next Orientation Activity on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at 11:30 noon in Room 310 of the Nursing Building, Medical Sciences Campus, UPR. 

I am including the Flyer for the activity for you to share with faculty and students. 

Potential candidates can include: junior faculty and postdoctoral trainees such as interns and residents, who want to become independent clinical investigators. Relevant clinical doctorate degrees include: M.D., D.D.S., D.M.D., D.O., O.D., N.D. (Doctor of Naturopathy), Ph.D. with clinical responsibilities, or Pharm. D. Postdoctoral appointees may include junior faculty (those within seven years of their first faculty appointment). Those individuals with a Ph.D. in nursing, clinical psychology or those who want to become involved in clinical research also may participate. 


The main areas that will be given priority are: 1) drug abuse and addiction including HIV/AIDS, alcohol and tobacco, 2) aging related conditions, 3) reproductive medicine, 4) bone, joints, muscles and skin diseases and 5) cancer.  Other health disparities affecting minority populations will also be considered, such as metabolic diseases, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, mental health and oral health.

Looking forward to working together,
