Individual Program Opportunities

stethoscopeIndividual Program or Faculty Sponsored Training Opportunities for Residents and Other Post-Graduate Trainees

Virtually every research-oriented faculty member in the Department works with trainees interested in pursuing investigative paths. Not every program offers opportunities on an annual basis, so we recommend that trainees contact the individual programs to learn what opportunities may be available and when they will be open.
