Investigator Pathway

Fellows in the investigational track spend a minimum of two years obtaining research experience, generally after finishing clinical training. Since the division has an NIH-sponsored research training grant (T32), fellows do not need to obtain their own funding to pursue 1-2 years of dedicated research. However, since grant writing is an essential component of research career development for those aspiring to become independent investigators, we encourage fellows to apply for grants during the course of their training.
