This one- to two-year training program is open to Ph.D., M.D., D.D.S., D.M.D, D.O., D.V.M., O.D., D.P.M., Sc.D., and Eng.D. graduates who are US citizens or permanent residents.

Trainees with clinical backgrounds are expected to devote full time effort to the proposed research training and to confine clinical duties to those that are part of the research training. These trainees may select a one-year research training period. Some residency programs may credit the research training time to the residency term. Non-clinical trainees are required to commit two years to this training program.

Trainees will be selected on the basis of excellence in previous training and proven research capabilities, as evidenced through both publications and presentations. Faculty will also look for evidence of interest in collaborative, multi-disciplinary research; commitment to a rigorous training program; and high levels of communication and organizational skills.

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents
