Physician-Scientist Training Program (PSTP)

About the 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 Physician Scientist Training Program (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, the PSTP Scholar will be prepared to pursue a career as both a physician-scientist and a board-certified specialist or subspecialist.

All residency applicants regardless of their specialty are invited to explore the PSTP option by asking the respective PSTP departmental program director. For a listing of departments, please click on the Prospective Scholars link above.
