Physician Scientist Training Program

Physician-Scientist Training Programs (PSTP) provides training to physicians who have a MD or combined MD/PhD degree with strong commitment to becoming physician-scientists.

Physician-scientists are physicians who devote regular components of their professional effort seeking new knowledge about health, disease, or delivery of patient care through research. Physician Scientist Training Programs (PSTP) are post-graduate training programs that aim to recruit highly qualified candidates who are committed in pursuing a career as an academic physician scientist. These programs may integrate residency training, clinical fellowships, and basic and clinical postdoctoral training to facilitate the transition period between MD/PhD, DO, and MD degrees and first faculty position.

As you explore the PSTP option, this site enables you to ask good questions and to make informed decisions. You should also contact each PSTP program to get answers to specific questions.
