Mayo Rehabilitation Research
Basford, Jeffrey R. M.D., Ph.D.
This program provides qualified physicians and doctoral-level scientists the training necessary to permit them to become leaders in rehabilitation related research.
The program offers five tracks (Biomechanics; Biostatistics/Epidemiology/Health Services Research; Multiple Sclerosis; Acquired Brain Injury; and Pain), which have been chosen to optimize the combination of the resources of the Mayo Clinic with important areas of rehabilitation-related research. Each track is tailored to the specific needs of a trainee but all will begin with the trainees working for a limited time with their mentors on ongoing research projects relevant to their interests.
Trainees are then expected to:
- Rapidly begin their own, self-initiated projects
- Become capable of sustained individual research
- Submit NIH-quality grant applications by the end of their training period
