Physician Scientist Training Pathway


The Physician-Scientist Training Pathway (PSTP) is designed to streamline postgraduate training and to foster early career development of physician-scientists who will be future leaders in academic medicine.  The PSTP integrates residency training, clinical fellowship, and postdoctoral research training.  We support research training with numerous T32 training grants and offer a large breath of clinical program.  Residents who are selected for the PSTP are guaranteed a subspecialty fellowship position and can complete residency training in two years.  They are also eligible for an additional academic allowance and supplemental salary during the research phase of their training.

The PSTP is available to applicants who have completed a Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP).
