Program Highlights


  • Master’s Program

Fellows receive a Master’s of Science in Clinical Research from the Graduate College at Rush University. This program is geared specifically toward post-doctoral students and provides intensive education in biostatistics and clinical research. At the conclusion of the program, fellows complete a master’s thesis that can also be used as a publication and the basis of a National Institutes of Health career development award.

  • Working with Planned Parenthood of IL

The fellowship program is held in partnership with Planned Parenthood of Illinois, so fellows are able to gain clinical knowledge in multiple settings. Through this partnership, fellows will expand the population they are serving and gain a broader understanding of applying clinical knowledge within various populations and while experiencing a variety of family planning needs.

  • Inaugural Year

As this is the program’s inaugural year, there is an opportunity to be part of the leadership and vision for the program going forward.  The Division of Family Planning is very excited to pursue this fellowship and engage and educate new leaders and providers at the highest level of excellence.

  • Large Academic Medical Center

Rush University Medical Center is a large, urban academic medical center serving a diverse population in Chicago’s medical district. RUMC is a non-profit teaching hospital providing tertiary care to the surrounding communities.
