Physician-Scientist Training Program
Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine has established an integrated, multi-departmental Physician-Scientist Training Program (PSTP) to mentor postdoctoral graduates (MD/PhDs or MDs with significant research experience) from residency training to faculty appointment.
The PSTP is designed to enhance the general training program with the opportunity for additional research-intensive training consistent with the needs of the individual and with the requirements of the specialty boards. At the completion of training, a PSTP scholar will be prepared to pursue a career as both a physician-scientist and a board-certified specialist or sub-specialist.
All residency applicants are invited to explore the PSTP options listed by department, regardless of their specialty. Participating departments include:
- Emergency Medicine
- Obstetrics & Gynecology
- Radiation Oncology
