Physician Scientist Residency Program

ID Fellow Ting-Yi Chen, MD, with Ann Danoff, MD, Dir. of the Div. of Endocrinology.

The PSRP pathway represents a “short track” into fellowship and research training, by allowing residents to complete only two, instead of the usual three years of an internal medicine residency. PSRP trainees will have the option of first completing the mandated clinical fellowship training followed by 3 years of dedicated research, or alternatively, completing the dedicated research prior to the clinical fellowship years. Both clinical and basic research are equally valued, although all applicants are expected to have significant prior research experience. While many applicants will be graduates of MD/PhD programs, an MD/PhD is not a prerequisite for acceptance. Upon completion of the PSRP pathway, trainees will be board eligible in both internal medicine and their chosen subspecialty.

About the Program
The Physician Scientist Residency Program (PSRP) is an opportunity for residents and fellows to take advantage of new insights into disease made possible by advances in science and technology and prepare them to make their own medical breakthroughs.

Special features of the program:

Application Procedure
Applicants with strong commitments to research careers are encouraged to apply to the NYU Langone Medical Center PRSP. The Divisions of Heme/Onc, Cardiology, ID, and GI are not accepting applicants for the 2018-19 interviewing season as they currently have filled all their physician scientist training track positions with candidates from previous years. Applicants interested in pursuing fellowship positions in these sub specialties are still encouraged to apply to the program but will have to go into the sub specialty match after 2 years of residency.
