  • A commitment to a career focused on clinical investigation.
  • A commitment to enroll in a masters or doctoral advanced didactic training program in clinical research (Clinical Epidmiology, Clinical Investigation, or Biostatistics) OR prior completion of equivalent training with proposed additional coursework.
    • The advanced degree program option requires a separate application to the Bloomberg School of Public Health for the particular program in which you wish to enroll.
  • Identification of and support from at least one Johns Hopkins faculty mentor active, established and successful in clinical investigation.
