The CRENC is now inviting applications from MD students, MDs and Medical Residents to undertake short collaborative projects with Prof. Anastase DZUDIE, as principal investigator and the CRENC research group, in clinical research.
These collaborative studentships would be expected to run for between 3 and 12 months, and this should include a period of CRENC Fellow in Training (FIT) for the MD student or candidate upon completion. The candidate would receive training in principles of clinical research and statistics. The candidate would be expected to make a scientific publication (abstract/poster, case report, research paper) as his/her contribution to this activity that would be in line with the end of the CRENC MD studentship.
The collaborative project and placement could be undertaken at any time during the MD programme or residency, or immediately afterwards as long as the student/candidate continues to be registered with the University or affiliated with a hospital or research centre.
Priority will be given to those interested in World Heart Federation road maps related to tobacco control, blood pressure control and secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Application guidelines are in attached Appendix 1.
Examples are provided in the attached Appendix 2.
Application form is in attached Appendix 3.
Applications are welcome from now until 31st September 2018, and the studentships need to be completed by 30th March 2019 for University of Buea and Douala Students, while 30th July 2019 for Institut Superieure de Sciences de Sante, Bagangte. Regarding medical residents, a more flexible timeline is allowed depending on year of specialisation. Studentships will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, provided applications meet required criteria. Also, there may be funding based on available grants per project. But most projects will be self-funded.
