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.

Program Information

Program Highlights

  • Length of Program:
    • Residency: Two or three years. Participants are able to pursue the American Board of Internal Medicine's Research Training Pathway (i.e. "Short Track") which allows qualified candidates to begin their subspecialty fellowship training in lieu of their third year of residency.
    • Fellowship: Varies, based on program and individual interests.
  • Separate NRMP Code for Research Pathway:
    • Interested applicants must apply using the NRMP code 1732140C1 for the Categorical-Research Internal Medicine, but must use the Categorical Medicine NRMP code (1732140C0) for ranking, as PSTP residents are embedded within the categorical program.
  • Benefits
    • Standard Trainee Benefits: University of Utah GME
    • Additional PSTP Benefits:
      • Guaranteed stipend support for residency and fellowship training.
      • During clinical training years (both residency and fellowship): Educational funding of $1,500 per year to support the purchase of computers, software, journal subscriptions, and conference registration.
      • During research training years (fellowship): After the candidate is board eligible, the candidate will be given a faculty appointment. Individuals who are awarded an individual extramural career development grant will be eligible for a $10,000 incentive payment.
  • Career Development Opportunities:
    • During the first two years of the program, trainees enter a formal mentorship program that encourages participation in journal club and laboratory meetings.
    • Residents also meet regularly with a senior physician scientist of their choice to explore career paths and potential areas of interest.
    • PSTP trainees are encouraged to attend didactic coursework and seminar series that integrate MD clinical and research fellows, MD/PhD students, and PhD students and postdoctoral fellows interested in molecular medicine.

Fellowship Opportunities

  • PSTP participants will be given the opportunity to pursue subspecialty training in any of the University of Utah's Medicine fellowships.
  • Four fellowships have well-established NIH Training Grants.
  • The Department of Medicine has 12 ACGME accredited clinical fellowships.

Application Process

  • Eligible candidates must have a MD-PhD, or MD with a strong background in research. Applicants must also meet the eligibility requirements for the University of Utah's Categorical Internal Medicine Residency Training Program.
  • Interested applicants must apply using the NRMP code 1732140C1 for the Categorical-Research Internal Medicine, but must use the Categorical Medicine NRMP code (1732140C0) for ranking, as PSTP residents are embedded within the categorical program.
  • See the categorical website for application requirements for all applicants.
  • PSTP candidates must also submit the two following documents to improg@hsc.utah.edu
    • A letter outlining specific subspecialty of interest and the reason(s) for that subspecialty.
    • An abstract outlining intended research within that subspecialty.
