The PSTP has strong support from the leadership of the College of Medicine<ref>[ Vice President and Dean's Message on PSTP]</ref> and is a symbol of the dedication of the University of Iowa to advancing the science of human health and of training the next generation of leaders in academic medicine. Nearly 30 trainees have completed the pathway, and many are members of the faculty at leading universities nationwide. A testament to the strength of the University of Iowa, many have chosen to continue their careers at the University of Iowa, including a number of NIH career development award recipients. With over 20 trainees currently in the program, the PSTP is one of the largest such enterprises in the country.
For the specifics of each department's involvement in the PSTP, please visit the website of the department or contact the PSTP Program Director and the Program Director of the residency or fellowship program of interest. A few departments will be briefly highlighted here. In all departments, the training plan will be customized to the career goals and interests of the trainee.
=== Internal Medicine ===
The Internal Medicine PSTP (categorical NRMP 1203140C0) is primarily focused on a short-track, ABIM research pathway. In this program, trainees complete two years of internal medicine training, providing a solid foundation of Internal Medicine in a compressed time period. Subspecialty training for between 1 and 2 years, depending on the fellowship, then begins, followed by three years of protected research time. One half day of clinic per week occurs during the research period. Admission to the fellowship is guaranteed pending satisfactory clinical performance in residency.
Trainees can choose not to short track, although the program encourages short tracking to help streamline the return of trainees to research. Finally, other programs, such as the combined Internal Medicine-Psychiatry residency (NRMP code 1203715C0), are available to interested trainees in those fields. A total of 23 categorical residents per year are admitted to the residency program, 1-2 of which are typically PSTP trainees.
=== Pediatrics ===
The Pediatrics residency (categorical NRMP 1203320C0) supports both the Integrated Research Pathway and the Accelerated Research Pathway. In the ARP, the timeline is similar to Internal Medicine, with two years of Pediatrics Residency, 1-2 years of subspecialty training, and three years of protected research time. The Integrated Research Pathway is available and offers with 11 months of research time, but PSTP trainees will undertake far more research during their protected research time. PSTP residents are also offered the opportunity for up to 20 weeks (5 blocks of 4 weeks) of research. The overall residency program accepts 15 categorical residents per year. Interested trainees should contact [ Yatin Vyas, MD, MBBS], Director of the Pediatrics PSTP.
The department is highly active in the science of pediatric diseases. One highlight is the University of Iowa Child Health Research Career Development Award (CHRCDA), an NIH-sponsored K12 career development award designed to support protected research time for physician-scientists in pediatrics. The program, established in 1990, has helped 40 junior faculty launch their careers<ref>[ CHRCDA K12 Program]</ref>.
=== Neurology ===
The Department of Neurology has a long history of educational and scientific excellence and is the third oldest department of neurology in the US<ref>[ About the Neurology Residency Program]</ref>. The department has created the Clinical Neuroscientist Program<ref>[ Clinical Neuroscientist Training Program]</ref> within the Neurology residency program (NRMP 1203180C0), and these trainees also participate in the PSTP. The program has seen 1-3 residents enter per year in recent years, out of 8 residents in the overall program. The structure of the program includes 12 months of elective research time during the 48 month residency, where time is protected save for continuity clinic and call. Following clinical training, the program guarantees funding for up to two years of additional scientific research. Interested trainees should contact the residency coordinator, Coronda Lee ([]), and the Associate Residency Director Kumar Narayanan, MD, PhD ([]) during the application process.
=== HEADING Pathology ===The Pathology residency training program (NRMP code 1203300C0) The program offers five positions per year and PSTP trainees may elect AP, CP, or AP and CP. While most trainees nationwide elect AP or CP, the PSTP does not mandate choosing one. The program consists of 3-4 years of pathology clinical training, 1 year of subspecialty fellowship training, and 1-3 years of research, during which a maximum of 25% clinical duties will be assigned. Subspecialty training is not mandated. Trainees may also elect to include six months of research interspersed with clinical training (e.g. 12 months clinical rotations - 6 months research - 18 months clinical rotations).  === HEADING Psychiatry ===The Department of Psychiatry encourages physician-scientists interested in psychiatric diseases to consider the Psychiatry residency program (NRMP code 1203400C0) as well as the Internal Medicine-Psychiatry residency program (NRMP number 1203715C0), both of which support the PSTP. Trainees in the PSTP may elect up to three months of research time for each postgraduate year. The program also offers a research track<ref>[ Psychiatry Residency Research]</ref>, which includes multiple research electives, and whose members may be eligible to participate in the PSTP. The Psychiatry residency program is dedicated to tailoring the program to each trainee's needs and goals. === HEADING Radiation Oncology ===The Radiation Oncology residency program (NRMP 1203430A0) supports the Holman Pathway of the American Board of Radiology. This pathway optimizes training to enable residents to fulfill core clinical requirements while bypassing some elective courses. Holman residents undertake 27 months of clinical training and 21 months of research training.
== Application Process ==
Each department has its own admissions procedures, and applicants should visit the websites of the participating departments<ref name="PSTP Departments">[ PSTP Participating Departments]</ref> for full details. For all departments, applicants should apply to the categorical residency program of their choice. They should concurrently submit the [ PSTP application] and send a current CV to []. The program prefers to interview applicants to Internal Medicine, Pathology, and Pediatrics on specific dates<ref>[ PSTP Admissions/Application]</ref>, and other departments may have preferred dates as well. However, the program may be flexible if these dates are not available. The interview process will take place over a single day, with an extended interview day featuring a chance to interact with potential research mentors at the university. Applicants able to attend one of the two preferred interview dates will be invited to have dinner at the home of the PSTP Program Director and meet current trainees in the PSTP as well as program faculty.
