The UICDRTP supports up to 3 years of post-doctoral training for NIH-eligible (US citizen or permanent resident) post-doctoral fellows (M.D., Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., or equivalent), including stipends and support for educational and training-related expenses. In addition to conducting closely mentored research, fellows participate in research seminars, journal clubs and work-in-progress meetings, and, when appropriate, complete graduate-level courses pertinent to their research and career goals, including degree conferring programs (e.g., MS in Clinical and Translational Science, Health Informatics, etc.).
Trainees should be no more than 5 years past completion of their Ph.D. or terminal degree. The UICDRTP Program will prioritize candidates seeking their first postdoctoral experience and applications from underrepresented minorities.
