Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP)

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, the 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 regardless of their specialty are invited to explore the PSTP options listed by department. For a listing of participating departments, please click on the Prospective Scholars link below.
