While the benefits of biomedical research and training of physician-scientists are evident, opportunities for residents to participate in intensive research activities can be limited during residency due to scheduling constraints.
Our Medical Research Track (MRT), aims to recruit and train exemplary physician-scientists. This track places our residents in the research labs and programs affiliated with the Allegheny Health Network for a longitudinal and intensive curriculum and training in their area of interest.
Each year, two incoming residents will be selected for our MRT based on their prior experiences and qualifications, and potential to succeed in their area of interest. Each resident will be enrolled in the track for the entire three years of their medical training.
Year One: Preparation
Residents will lay the groundwork for and will begin designing their research projects
Year Two: Execution
Residents will have the time to take their project to from idea to completion.
Year Three: Dissemination
Residents will share the fruits of their work with the academic medical community
