StARR Program


The Stimulating Access to Research during Residency (StARR) program is a 1-year opportunity dedicated to immersing residents in a research experience.  This program is only 1 of approximately 10 programs offered as a part of internal medicine residency nationally.  It is funded by a $1.3M R38 grant funded by the NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).  Residents will work directly with a research mentor for the entirety of the StARR year (and beyond). 

Graduates of the StARR program are also eligible to apply for K38 grants while in fellowship.
