The Advanced Residency Training at Stanford (ARTS) Program offers residents and clinical fellows the opportunity to combine their clinical training with advanced research training to complete a PhD degree during or upon completion of residency or clinical fellowship. The program begins with one or more years of postgraduate clinical training, followed by research training in one of twenty graduate programs from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, or Humanities and Sciences. Through the ARTS Program that provides individuals with the tools needed to move freely between the laboratory and the clinic, Stanford demonstrates its commitment to the emerging disciplines of translational medicine and precision medical care.
The Cancer-TNT Program is a synergistic three-year postdoctoral training program bringing together 25 faculty and nine departments from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities and Sciences to train the next generation of interdisciplinary leaders in cancer nanotechnology research and clinical translation. Trainees complete coursework and research with two complementary mentors to bridge multiple disciplines such as chemistry, molecular biology, bioengineering, molecular imaging, nanoengineering, and clinical medicine to advance cancer nanotechnology translation research, diagnosis, and treatment.
The CSBS program is a two-year postdoctoral training program at Stanford University focused on innovative, multidisciplinary cancer research education that seamlessly integrates experimental and computational biology to systematically unravel the complexity of cancer. The program brings together 36 Stanford faculty mentors from 19 departments or divisions bridging the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Humanities and Sciences. The CSBS Program has trained five inaugural scholars and completed candidate recruitment for the next trainee cohort that started on September 1, 2017.
The SCIT Program is a two-year program that offers a unique research opportunity in cancer imaging. Currently in its 25th year of training, the program, initially called the Advanced Techniques for Cancer Imaging and Detection Program, was designed and directed by Dr. Gary Glazer, former chair of the department. The goal of the program is to provide MD and PhD research fellows advanced training in cancer-related imaging research with a focus that is primarily driven by physics and technology development and application. Since its inception in 1992, the SCIT program has provided support for the training of more than 40 fellows.
The SMIS Program is a three-year interdisciplinary postdoctoral training program at Stanford University. The centerpiece of the SMIS program is the opportunity for trainees to conduct innovative molecular imaging research that is co-mentored by faculty in complementary disciplines. The SMIS program, with its distinctive focus on biology and chemistry, is in its 12th year and has provided training and support for 31 fellows to date.
The TBI2 program, jointly led by faculty in Radiology and Bioengineering, offers unique multidisciplinary predoctoral research training in biomedical imaging technologies across all spatial scales, spanning magnetic resonance, computed tomography and radiography, optical imaging, ultrasound, PET, and hybrid imaging such as X-ray/MR and PET-MR, as well as image processing and analysis for diagnosis, radiation therapy, and basic science. Since recruitment began in 2010, the program has supported and trained 20 graduate students.
