Overview: As part of the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation Diversity in Clinical Trials Career Development Program (BMSF DCTCDP), the Clinical Investigator Pipeline Program (CIPP) is a summer service-learning externship designed to expose talented medical students (MD, DO, MD/PhD, DO/PhD) of diverse backgrounds to clinical research in community-based clinical research settings (e.g., community health centers, safety net hospitals, clinical research organization).
Description: The BMSF CIPP offers a distinctive approach to increasing diversity in clinical trials by offering rising second-year medical students a 6-week intensive and immersive summer service-learning experience in underserved communities where underrepresented patients receive care. Pipeline students gain exposures to clinical research, acquire community engagement and leadership skills, and are mentored by early-stage clinical investigators participating in the BMSF DCTCDP.
In 2022, BMSF CIPP Site Partners will be located in:
Objectives: To transform the clinical research landscape by providing training and resources to build a network of new community-oriented clinical investigators. The BMSF DCTCDP and BMSF CIPP both (1) provide emerging investigators with community engagement and research skills to increase diversity in clinical trials, and (2) expand the number of community-based sites with the capacity to conduct clinical and translational research.
