As part of the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation Diversity in Clinical Trials Career Development Program (BMSF DCTCDP), the BMSF Clinical Investigator Pipeline Program (CIPP) is a summer service-learning externship designed to expose talented medical students (MD, DO, MD/PhD, DO/PhD) of diverse backgrounds to clinical research in community-based clinical research settings (e.g., community health centers, safety net hospitals, clinical research organizations).

The BMSF CIPP offers a distinctive approach to increasing diversity in clinical trials by offering rising second-year medical students a 6-week intensive and immersive summer service-learning experience in communities where underrepresented patients receive care. BMSF CIPP students gain exposures to clinical research, acquire community engagement and leadership skills, and are mentored by early-stage clinical investigators participating in the BMSF DCTCDP.

BMSF CIPP Students each receive a $5,000 scholarship stipend to cover travel, living, and lodging expenses during the service-learning period.
