For an idea about the program from a student’s perspective, Dr. Rita Kelnhoffer-Trammell describes how her degree from UIS helped her to become a research assistant professor at SIU School of Medicine:
“In my current position in the Department of Surgery, I conduct independent research projects as well as mentor the research projects of orthopedic residents. The CLS program provided me with the solid background I needed to successfully complete my Ph.D. and conduct independent research.”
