Salary support: The fellow's salary is supported by clinical funds during the clinical year of training. One training grant is available to support fellows during their research years. Fellows can receive up to three years of support from the training grants, but many choose to apply for other fellowships, especially "K-awards" (K08, K23, etc), after one or two years of research because of the higher stipend they offer.
