Program Overview

Trainees are appointed to a 2-3 year fellowship, during which they are expected to devote at least 80-90% of their time to research efforts. The remaining 10-20% of the time is devoted to didactic activities, including coursework.  It is important to note that trainees have no clinical responsibilities during the two-year period, and thus are able to dedicate themselves completely to their research endeavors.  Trainees are supported throughout the training period, so that the emphasis is on participating in research and not on grant-writing.
