Scripps Clinic has a rich tradition of clinical and basic science research. In 1924, following the discovery of insulin, philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps founded the Scripps Metabolic Clinic to diagnose, treat and investigate diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
Today, Scripps Clinic partners with The Scripps Research Institute, one of the world’s largest, private, nonprofit basic science research organizations.
In addition, the Scripps Translational Science Institute links TSRI and Scripps Clinic, educating the next generation of clinical and translational scientists.
The Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Scripps Clinic and Scripps Green Hospital integrates clinical research in several ways. Fellows can work alongside research coordinators at TSRI to conduct clinical research on new gynecologic procedures and treatments.
The research fellowship is ideal for physicians with a long-term interest in clinical or basic biomedical research.
