Additional opportunities are available to be involved in randomized clinical trial interventions, with exposure to quantitative analysis methods. Other opportunities include participating in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) program and in national clinical trial networks. Access to multiple datasets will contribute to publication and presentation opportunities, and fellows will have protected time for their own research interests, including grant writing. There may also be the opportunity to provide community outreach activities.
