Program Description

The Pathology Physician-Scientist Training Program (PSTP) is designed for the MD-PhD or MD graduate who has achieved significant accomplishment in research and demonstrated commitment to pursuing a career combining the clinical practice of pathology with basic or translational science investigation. The Pathology Physician-Scientist Training Program (PSTP) is directed by Kenneth E. Bernstein, M.D and the Pathology Residency Program is directed by Sumire Kitahara, M.D. and Kevin Waters, MD, PhD.

Application Process

Applications should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) by selecting the Pathology Physician-Scientist Training Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Residents will be accepted into the program via the Pathology PSTP-specific NRMP number.

Program Information

Within the program’s first three years, trainees will complete the American Board of Pathology (ABP) eligibility requirements for Anatomic Pathology-only or Clinical Pathology-only board certification. Up to six months of research is permitted during this time, with some flexibility in the scheduling of the clinical training and research elements. Trainees take the primary certification examination in the spring of the third year of clinical training as soon as ABP training requirements are completed. This will be followed by two years of research and one year of subspecialty fellowship training. Trainees also apply for membership in the Clinical Scholars Program. During the research years, trainees participate in activities related to their subspecialty interest, including weekly conferences and meetings
