The funding for four positions is administered by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine. The department has a long history for outstanding contributions to the field of reproductive science. Trainees will be exposed to highly talented research and clinical faculty in a superior integrative environment. The projects will expose the trainees to translational research investigations.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine and the Mentored Training in Clinical Investigation (MTPCI) program propose an innovative research training program in clinical and reproductive epidemiology, specifically designed to strengthen the links between women’s health research and traditional epidemiology.

Trainees will learn to use the range of approaches available in epidemiology to address issues in women’s health related to etiology, prevention, treatment, prognosis, clinical economics, technology assessment, medical decision making, and quality of patient care.
