Program Description

The Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP) in the Department of Internal Medicine is a post-graduate training program intended to produce clinically trained scientists with interests ranging from basic to translational to clinically oriented research. The program accepts qualified applicants who have completed combined MD-PhD degrees (or an MD degree with significant research training) into a program that includes both clinical training and post doctoral research.

The pathway begins with clinical training in the University of Utah's Internal Medicine Residency Training Program. Residents benefit from exposure to complex and diverse patient populations from throughout the Intermountain West in an environment that values teaching, camaraderie, and a high level of resident autonomy.

Trainees are given great flexibility in their selection of laboratories and mentors for postdoctoral research. Trainees may choose to pursue research within the Department of Internal Medicine or take advantage of other opportunities and collaborations within the School of Medicine. The University of Utah is home to a number of world-class research centers, including the Huntsman Cancer Institute, the Eccles Institute of Human Genetics, and the Nora Eccles Harrison Cardiovascular Training & Research Institute.
