The Physician Scientist Pathway (PSP) activities are thoughtfully designed to nurture the thrill of discovery. We will facilitate links with physician scientists and mentors within the Hopkins-scientific community from the beginning of training. This is supplemented by both formal and informal interactions with members of the PSP council, composed of renowned physician scientist within the Johns Hopkins biomedical research community. Additional programs include:
- How to give a talk
- Paper and grant writing
- Mentor-mentee relationships
- Conducting job searches
- Academic promotions
Trainees are encouraged to present research findings at international meetings and will present their work at a department wide scientific meeting and symposium. PSP trainees are also encouraged to take the following courses:
Trainees will be connected with fellowships as early as possible in the PSP. This may lead to opportunities to secure fellowship training before the formal NRMP process. The earliest would be during internship, particularly for those pursuing the ABIM research track. The PSP leaders will facilitate these connections with mentors and fellowship programs.
Residents in the physician-scientist track meet every other month for a Journal Club focused on basic/translational contributions to clinical care in a variety of fields.
