Urologic Oncology Research - 12 months
The fellow will choose a research mentor who will guide them through a primary research project. This can be clinical, translational, or basic science. Individual guidance will be given through weekly meetings with the program director and the study PI. Fellows are expected to continue to attend all conferences and presentations during their research time.
Master's in Clinical Research
Fellows in urologic oncology can choose to pursue a Master of Science in Clinical Research during their research year.
There are three full-time research staff within the Department of Urology. They have specific expertise in running clinical research projects including cooperative group, industry sponsored, and investigator initiated clinical trials. Last year, we enrolled over 800 patients in trials and registries. This is independent of the Cancer Center Clinical Trials mechanism.
Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, PhD provides biostatistical support for the Department of Urology. In his role, he is both a co-investigator on clinical trials, as well, as our biostatistician for all urology research projects.
