Clinical-Scientist Training Program

Clinical-Scientist Training Program


The Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute, founded in 1929, is the Department of Ophthalmology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. It has 100 full-time faculty members engaged in research and is one of the top awardees for federal research support. Total research support from federal, non-profit, and private sources totaled over $13 million in direct costs in fiscal 2007.  The Wilmer Institute has been recognized nationally in the U.S. News and World Report survey and by vote of its peers as a premier ophthalmic teaching center in the United States, and its training and research programs are voted at the top of Ophthalmology departments in national surveys of Chairs of Ophthalmology departments. Patient-oriented research training for MD and PhD students has been an important goal for Wilmer. This is particularly important since clinician-scientists arean increasingly smaller proportion of those conducting research and successfully competing for federal research support. To demonstrate our commitment to research training, Wilmer developed its Clinician-Scientist Training Program (CSTP) to produce the next generation of clinician-scientists.
