Patient-Orientated Research

Education and Training

Conducting research requires knowledge and understanding of the process and the federal regulations involved. The CRI offers a variety of educational programs at multiple experience levels. Some are formally approved courses and electives; others award certificates, however, most include practical application of learned skills. MORE

Case Report for Interested Students/Faculty

CRI is pleased to offer another case report in its ongoing effort to promote medical writing. Please note expressed interest is on a first come first served basis.

Neurofibromatosis with GI tumor – this case would be ideal for those interested in GI or Oncology although any interested party is welcome to participate.

Since the patient is in Lubbock, ideally would like Oncology or GI faculty or fellows here in Lubbock to be involved. However, PB and Amarillo participation is very welcome.  Please contact Dr. Alan Peiris at Deadline to respond: 2/28/2019
