Physician Scientist Schedule

We offer three different potential schedules for residents with MD/PhDs who are interested in pursuing research careers. We have successfully had residents on all three pathways in residency.

  1. Categorical Pathway:  5 months research/elective time
  2. Integrated Research Pathway (IRP):  3 years residency + 3 years fellowship; allows for 11 months of research during residency
  3. Accelerated Research Pathway (ARP): 2 years residency + 4 years fellowship; allows for an extra year of research during fellowship
