Health Services Scholar Program

The Department of Urology at Emory University seeks candidates for two-year Health Services Scholars Program starting in July 2015.

The Emory Urology Health Services Scholar Program is an academic training for individuals who have completed their urology residency. This program is offered in conjunction with Emory’s Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) leading to a degree; Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR).

The program provides academic faculty with didactic and mentored training in health services research. Concurrent with a clinical urology practice (40%), candidates are provided 60% protected academic time to enroll in the Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) degree program, and conduct clinical and translational research in their area of interest and expertise.  

The Emory MSCR degree program is sponsored by the Laney Graduate School at Emory University, and is designed for faculty members who have demonstrated a commitment to a career in clinical investigation. The MSCR requires a minimum of 30 academic credit hours, which include classes, a research thesis and a written grant proposal. Mentoring is provided by an established and successful federally-funded clinical investigator. The primary objective of the program is to train future leaders in urology health services.
