The Physician Scientist Residency Training Award will grow the population of surgeon-scientists who can effectively lead robust research programs, successfully compete for independent research funding and more effectively engage with basic scientists. A program rare in the field of urology, but common in other medical and surgical fields, the program supports three years of research training embedded within residency.
Eligible urology residency programs are invited to apply as a Program Site. Three Program Sites will be selected to participate in an early, special residency match program with eligible medical students to fill one trainee position to begin residency training in July 2019. After completing the first two years of clinical training, the matched resident will matriculate into the three-year research training program, followed by completion of the final three years of clinical training. The Urology Care Foundation will provide $75,000 per year ($225,000 total) to support the trainee during each of the three years of research training. Institutional cost-sharing is required. Medical students will be invited to apply for the available trainee position summer 2018.
The 2017 Physician Scientist Residency Training Award Pre-Announcement for Program Sites is now available. The Program Announcement will be released in early May. For email notification when the Program Announcement is released, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
