Physicians Continue Their Education

Mariko Ishimori, M.D., right, was one of a dozen aspiring clinical scientists who recently graduated from Cedars-Sinai’s Clinical Scholar Program.

The program is designed for medical residents, fellows and young faculty at Cedars-Sinai. It includes a part-time curriculum in translational medicine and clinical research and concludes with an optional second year of full-time research under the supervision of an experienced mentor.

There are roughly 40 scholars enrolled in the program at a given time.

The program is directed at preparing the physicians for successful NIH and other research grant applications. Dr. Ishimori, Odelia Cooper, M.D., and Shervin Rabizadeh, M.D., have all received National Institutes of Health funding to date.
