The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is establishing this clinical research training program aimed at improving the capacity of the integrative health field to carry out rigorous research. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will fund coherent and unified partnerships between institutions with research intensive environments (e.g., T32 and CTSA institutions) and institutions with curricula focused on clinical training of practitioners in complementary modalities and disciplines that also have faculty with a substantial interest in rigorous clinical research. The program will support mentored research training and hands-on experiences in clinical research, as well as trainee-focused developmental efforts including didactic activities in clinical research methodology, integrative health, and trainee-initiated pilot clinical research projects within NCCAM's research priority areas. The funded institutional programs are expected to generate a cadre of research clinicians who are able to participate fully in multi-disciplinary teams engaged in complementary and integrative health research.
UIC is limited to one application per partnership. Please note the name of the partner institution in item 10 of the e-LOI
