Clinical Research

Let’s Collaborate

We are interested in collaborating with practitioners on clinical studies, identifying clinical subjects and supporting intern/resident projects.

The CVM Office for Research has created the Clinical Partnership Matching Grant Program to foster clinical collaborative research within the CVM and with preceptors and clinical practices. This program also supports the shared mentoring of interns and/or residents in practice. It is designed, both in scope and breadth, not to support fully-rounded projects but, instead, to be a buttress for seed grants, preliminary data accrual, pilot program exploration, or resident/student support.
