Clinical Psychology Internship Program

CDIS partners with the UIC Clinical Psychology Internship program to provide interns with research training opportunities in HIV/AIDS, drug use prevention, and implementation science for youth, adults, and families.

Interns are invited to work with CDIS mentors on current ongoing data collection and study implementation opportunities, as well as to participate in Professional Development Group, a bi-weekly meeting for students, postdocs, junior faculty, and researchers in training to discuss issues related to professional growth and development.

Medical Scientist Training Program

In response to the need for accomplished academic medical scientists, the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine offers a combined training program that leads to both the MD and the PhD degrees. The objective of the Program is to train students for careers in academic medicine and research. The Program integrates the medical curriculum with graduate studies in the basic medical sciences. Students pursue original research projects in the laboratories of the University’s graduate faculty along with medical studies in the College of Medicine.

CDIS partners with the UIC Medical Scientist Training Program to give trainees access to research scholars and projects that have direct implications for translational science. In this video, Geri Donenberg describes the Center’s work and opportunities for Medical Scientist Trainees to pursue research projects at the Center.
