Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) Fellowships Develop Successful Independent Investigators

CoHSTAR training is an investment in people that extends FPTR model of supporting doctoral trainees.

CoHSTAR’s opportunities for postdoctoral and early career faculty helps bridge the gap between PhD completion and successful independent investigators, with the target of developing health services researchers. In addition to training, CoHSTAR provides protected time to write grant applications. Consequently, 10 grants have been awarded related to CoHSTAR fellowships.

“In the year that I have been a fellow, I submitted 3 articles for publication and participated in applying for grants. But the biggest reason that CoHSTAR is such a great opportunity is that it links people that are doing similar work.”
