The MedStar Teaching Scholars Program is a two-year longitudinal program leading to Medical Education Research Certification (MERC) and Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) certification. The program is led by MedStar Health Academic Affairs and MedStar Health Research Institute, in conjunction with the Association of American Medical Colleges, and has been in place since 2009. The heart of the program is teaching clinician educators from across MedStar Health how to apply research principles to medical education; become informed consumers of the medical education research literature; to be effective collaborators in medical education research; and to develop as a leader in academic medicine.

The MedStar Research Scholars Program supports the development of our clinicians who seek careers with an important focus on clinical and translational research, in large part by addressing critical needs for research mentorship and critical feedback in project design, analysis, and presentation. Ideal Research Scholar applicants are early career MedStar clinicians seeking to develop significant personal scholarship in clinical or translational research, but with limited past research experience, or with research experience in another field, who now seek to become independent, extramurally-supported clinical investigators. MedStar Health Research Institute, MedStar Health Academic Affairs, and the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science are pleased to offer this Research Career Development program to our clinical and junior research colleagues.
