The International Clinical Research Fellowship (ICRF) program provides fellowships for U.S.-based medical students to take a year out from school to conduct mentored clinical research in developing countries. Clinical research requires a unique blend of medical and research skills. The ICRF program was designed to support this blending of skills by giving medical students an outstanding clinical research experience in global health while they are in the midst of developing their medical proficiency. The long-term goal of this program is to develop the next generation of clinical investigators working in global health. Students must be matriculated at a U.S.-based medical school to be eligible for the ICRF.

Medical, dental, and veterinary students are in a unique position to advance biomedical research and translate findings from the lab into the treatment of disease. The HHMI Medical Fellows Program gives these students a chance to focus on a research project full-time and determine how they can incorporate research into their professional careers.

Student scholars engage in a mentored basic, clinical, or translational research project on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, or at close by NIH facilities that matches their research interests and career goals. The MRSP is designed for U.S. citizens and permanent residents currently enrolled in an accredited program who have completed their core clinical rotations. This does not exclude students with strong research interests from applying prior to having completed their clinical rotations.
MRSP scholars will experience the full continuum of biomedical research—the bench, the bedside, between both and beyond. The MRSP offers:
- Lectures on seminal basic, translational and clinical research topics that highlight the continuum of discovery, as well as issues in bioethics, science policy and emerging technologies
- Training in clinical protocol development and the conduct of human subjects research
- Clinical teaching rounds focusing on NIH research patients
- Academic leadership and drug development training
- Dedicated research mentor and advisor
- NIH Clinical Center courses such as "Introduction to the Principles and Practice of Clinical Research" and the "Ethical and Regulatory Aspects of Clinical Research"

The mission of Sarnoff Cardiovascular Research Foundation is to engage medical students and young investigators in a personalized research experience with preeminent cardiovascular scientists, and to foster the next generation of leaders in the field. The Sarnoff Fellowship Program offers research opportunities for outstanding medical students to explore careers in cardiovascular research. Applicants must be enrolled in accredited U.S. medical schools. Sarnoff Fellows conduct intensive work in a research facility, located in the United States, for one year. Prior research experience is not a prerequisite. What makes Sarnoff unique is our lifetime commitment to the Fellow. A member of our Scientific Committee guides the Fellow during the research year and throughout the Fellow's career. The Fellow interacts with other Fellows, Scholars and Foundation leaders at the Sarnoff Foundation's Annual Scientific Meetings, Sarnoff-sponsored regional events, and at other scientific conferences.
