16 Nov Introducing CRISP: Unique Learning Opportunity for Physician Clinical Investigators
Apply now for the Clinical Research Intensive Summer Program (CRISP), designed to provide research fellows and early-career faculty with hands-on experience and essential clinical research skills.

In addition, CRISP offers flexibility with elective choices, allowing participants to select between Quality Improvement or Clinician and Patient-Reported Outcomes. CRISP also emphasizes networking by creating opportunities to engage with experienced clinical investigators and gain insights into their career paths.
This program welcomes applications from all research fellows and early-career faculty members whose careers involve significant clinical investigation. Candidates selected to CRISP will be required to commit full-time, dedicating up to 4 hours in class daily and a similar out-of-class commitment throughout the 3-week period. The entirety of the program will take place in person at the Fred Hutch Cancer Center Campus, enabling opportunities for small group projects, engagement with senior clinical investigators, and networking opportunities among investigators, all of which are vital part of the experience.
