Physician Scientist Training Five-Year Non-Degree Program


The Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is a five-year tuition assistance non-degree granting program through which students with a strong research interest and background can start to build careers as physician scientists. The program involves paid research rotations during the summer before and after the first year of medical school, and a paid research year between the second and third years of medical school. The PSTP program has an enrichment curriculum of research-oriented classes for its participants and provides close career mentoring and research mentoring throughout. Medical school tuition is partially covered while students matriculate through the program. Throughout the program, students will follow the medical school calendar for the fall and spring terms. The calendar is available at the Office of Medical Education’s Web site. For more information consult the program’s Web site.
