Clinical Research Fellowships
Support the next generation of researchers and evidence informed natural health care providers.
Give to a research fellowship:
- Support natural health care researchers-in-training
- Expand complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) science
- Advance new knowledge for the benefit of practitioners and patients
The importance of clinical research
Clinical research can inform how care is delivered and guide clinical decisions. Northwestern’s Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies is one of the leading research centers for back and neck pain. Our researchers investigate some of the most pressing issues in complementary and alternative health care.
Clinical research leads to:
- New knowledge about the efficacy of treatment
- Better delivery of health care to patients
- Stronger influence over healthcare policy
Meeting the research needs of natural health care
As more patients are drawn to natural health care, the need for scientifically rigorous, clinically-relevant research is greater than ever. So is the need to train future evidence-informed practitioners and researchers.
Evidence Informed Practice Fellowship
Our dedication to evidence-informed practice is so high that we’ve also created a unique program, the Evidence Informed Practice Fellowship, to train a new generation of natural health care providers – more knowledgeable about and able to contribute to the research that supports their professions.
The Evidence Informed Practice Fellowship Program trains:
- Research scientists who can compete for federal research funding
- Teachers who will incorporate research into Northwestern’s classrooms
- Clinicians who will deliver evidence-informed care
